Ceme­tery van­dal­ism

Papakura Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

An act of van­dal­ism has seen around 200 re­cently-planted trees ripped out at Pa­pakura South Ceme­tery.

Auck­land Coun­cil ceme­ter­ies man­ager Cather­ine Moore says the de­struc­tion was found near the pond by con­trac­tors over the week­end.

‘‘We are work­ing to make this a nice space that of­fers a pri­vate and peace­ful en­vi­ron­ment for vis­i­tors and it is un­for­tu­nate any­one would dis­re­spect the site,’’ Moore says.

Re­plant­ing work is now un­der­way. Moore en­cour­ages any­one with in­for­ma­tion to call po­lice.
