Quadring park and village hall hit by vandals
Graffiti has blighted a village park just days after residents raised more than £100 towards its upkeep.
Quadring Parish Councillor Henry Bingham was dismayed by the discovery on Tuesday, which saw names, tags and inappropriate imagery scrawled on play equipment and the village hall.
Coun Bingham, who also sits on South Holland District Council, says the majority of the graffiti has been cleared off but would like to find those who did it.
He said: “I’ve got rid of it but I think it’s sad that the village raised more than £100 at the weekend for the park and then someone’s little darling has done this.
“I would like to find out who has done this so that they can make up for it. It’s very unpleasant.”
Coun Bingham says that when instances like this occur he can understand why people are wary of street art.
However, he doesn’t want people to let this incident tarnish the work of a newly created district council Street Art Policy.
He said: “I was and am fully supportive of the policy and this shouldn’t tarnish it.
“When you see things like this, you can understand why some people are anti-street art because this is what they think it is. But this isn’t what it is and one bad group shouldn’t mean everyone is tarred with the same brush.”
