Growing anger at vandals
VANDALS have set back the efforts of Biggenden businesses to beautify the town by tearing plants out of flower pots placed along Edward St.
The vandals left a trail of damage from Biggenden Bakery to Deb’s Country Outfitters.
The damage was discovered early Thursday, the morning after the third State of Origin rugby league match.
Deb’s Country Outfitters owner Deb Frampton said it wasn’t the first time the plants have been targeted.
Ms Frampton said the pots had been adopted by individual businesses and the flowers growing outside her shop had been ripped out and tossed into the middle of the road.
“The petunias were a blaze of pink and just starting to spread over the sides of the pot,” she said.
“I water them ever day and have been fertilising them in readiness for the upcoming Rose Festival.
“It is at our own expense that we (the businesses) are trying to beautify our little country town.”
PRETTY POOR: Petunias provided a colourful display outside Deb's Country Clothing Outfitters but vandals have destroyed the display.
This flower pot was a blaze of colour but the plants were torn out.
Vandals left a trail of destruction behind them.
The salvia were ripped out or broken off.
