Community vows to ‘beat vandals’ and save garden
“I noticed it while walking my dog and it’s particularly sad as the garden group was up there only on Monday at a planting event.
“This is the second time the fencing has been vandalised. The last time was only just over a month ago.
“I don’t know if it’s kids. I wouldn’t like to speculate, although I never see any kids hanging around when I’m there.
“A lot of people, including myself, enjoy and take pride in our wee garden and plots so it is a shame to see someone spoil it like this.
“There’s so much positive stuff happening in Lochee at the moment.
“Myself and the Village of Lochee Community Partnership are trying our best to improve our area and get people to take pride in the area, so it’s sad to see vandalism like this happening.
“I think it’s a sign of much bigger problems that need to be tackled in the area.”
Mr Mccallum added: “It is extremely dark in the garden at night and you can’t see anything on the path.
“Quite a number of people use the paths and walk their dogs there.
“Hopefully we can get some funding for new lighting.”
