One of the Guys that was to be part of the town’s Hallowe’en bonfire event has been mindlessly vandalised.
A Guy at the end of The Weir which was seated on a vintage cycle was partly destroyed and had some items stolen in what could only be described as a ‘violent mugging’. Not only were serious injuries incurred but personal property was also stolen. If anyone has seen a nice straw hat – then please can it be returned!
Seriously, Whitchurch can do without this type of incident.
This follows reports of other petty acts of vandalism this weekend, ranging from rubbish strewn to the spraying of obscene graffiti.
If anyone has any knowledge please call the police on 101.
But the fun will continue…
Guys are now popping up around the town with some imaginative creations. Remember, there are to be awards for the best so make sure your Guy is on display – in your garden, on your rooftop or anywhere where it can be seen. They need to be in place by Thursday evening, in time for the judging which will be on Friday and Saturday this week.
They can then be taken down to the Bonfire and Fireworks on Saturday evening, where the winner will be announced.
To register your Guy for judging please call 893513.
