Vandals Strike in Leabank Square

There was very bad news today for all the kids who designed the Leabank Square Gardening Club noticeboard (http://leabanksquare.blogspot.com/2010/03/leabank-square-recycled-notice-board.html) when some vandals destroyed it.

Sometime in the afternoon they struck and destroyed the beautifully painted recycled noticeboard. Unfortunately no-one saw who did it - but a few of the younger Gardening Club members told me that they saw it fly-tipped in the domestic bin area.

To rub salt in their wounds - the vandals seem to make their destruction even crueler by throwing the destroyed noticeboard in our own refuse area!! Perhaps they are trying to make some kind of point?

Anyhow - once the spring comes along again we'll do an even better one for the garden.

Why smash the notice board up? Complete bloody idiots with too much time on their hands man!

I don't know if you're joking (or making a sly dig at the person) but I saw who did it. It was done in the middle of the day and he wasn't being very subtle about it.

It was one guy, late 20's - early 30's (in case anyone is ready to blame the younger residents). I assumed he was one of the same group of people who put that new one up and all those benches and planted the trees.

Ahhhh Mate!! I've just seen the mashed up board in the bin area! Maybe Lucy was right, why vandalise it and then drop it right in front of our door? Maybe someones trying to make a point? Whats the point anyway? they don't like kids doing art in leabank? They dont like our block? They just angry sods?

If it is the same bunch of artists why did they destroy our kids art? Surely they could just have taken it down, not mangled the picture? And on whos orders did they do this? Does no one consult us any more?

Sóna maybe it was the guys you knicked the 'for sale' signs off of in the first place. Came back for a bit of revenge.

It doesn't excuse the vandalism, but think of it as an opportunity for another bout of imagination and inspiration.

Sóna
Well whoever they are, Hackney Council want to charge us £70 to remove the flytipping.
Even if was the pmms lot, what made them think its okay to just dump them?
I tried to ask if they would just take it in the dumptruck, and they refused (geddit?!) but now someone has gone and put it into the actual bin, so we'll see if they take it out again next week.
It's such a pity that someone trashed it, all my sign-fors love driving up to the map and seeing which block I live in straight away. Now they join the rest circling the carpark.

I think its just mean that they not only smashed it up, but also then came and dumped it so that the kids who did it can see the destruction. What kind of sick people would do that to kids?

Shame about the board!
The lucy sessions? I used to fancy you so badly!
Hope all is well...

I personally think the green area is looking a lot better at least someone is making an effort to improve the Square.. and can you imagine what the Square would be like without a gate next year during the Olympics?

What is sad about both notice boards is the fact that when people do put stuff on them some idiot has to take it down again, get a life for god's sake!
