Many of you will remember the vile act of vandalism shown on this board in November 2009. It can be seen here.
Although I didn't realise at the time, it was clearly all kicking off in 2009!
The disgusting act of vandalism shown on the above link took place at night. As the year wore on, however, the acts of vandalism became more brazen. The following film from 2009 shows an act of daylight destruction. I don't think this kind of behaviour is funny!
"Four bins on the School Lane field have been wrecked in the past few weeks after having high-power fireworks set off in them in an attempt to shower the area with dog excrement.
As well as creating a steaming mess for the groundsmen to clean up, the explosions have also forced Windlesham Parish Council, which runs the field, to remove all its bins".
As Assistant Parish Clerk, Philip Cottell, puts it: "When you have to take apart the damaged bins which are full of dog mess after a firework has gone off in it, it's not the nicest job in the world".
Therefore, the council ordered the removal of all dog waste bins from the field and commissioned the manufacture of a blast proof model. As Kevin Clegg, the managing director of Earth Anchors, said, the new bins would have a mesh bottom fitted. If a firework were let off in the new bins it would blow the mesh and faeces out of the bottom but leave the bin’s structure intact. Once again, necessity has proved to be the mother of invention.
The above picture shows council worker Steve Knott with blown up dog waste bins. Read the article here.
