Van­dals wreck Town Team hang­ing bas­kets

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

MEM­BERS of Fort Wil­liam Town Team have voiced their frus­tra­tion at van­dals who dam­aged hang­ing flower bas­kets in High Street.

The bas­kets, paid for by the group with the help of spon­sors, were placed on lamp-posts along the High Street to brighten up the area.

Af­ter a meet­ing this week, a Town Team rep­re­sen­ta­tive said: ‘Af­ter the High Street look­ing fan­tas­tic all sum­mer we now have two empty spa­ces where hang­ing bas­kets once looked beau­ti­ful.

‘Th­ese bas­kets be­long to lo­cal busi­nesses who have spent their hard-earned money help­ing us im­prove Fort Wil­liam for ev­ery­one.

‘The van­dal­ism of the bas­kets only gave the per­son re­spon­si­ble a short amount of plea­sure play­ing foot­ball with them in the road.

‘When they were left alone to grow and bloom they gave thou­sands of peo­ple en­joy­ment ev­ery day.

‘We are all ex­tremely dis­ap­pointed and hope the rest of the High Street dis­play sur­vives un­til the end of the sea­son.’
