A cowardly delinquent defaced the cenotaph wall at Hermitage Park in a poorly executed defamation attempt just days before Remembrance Sunday.
Another mile marker on the road to heartbreak for Hermitage Park volunteers came recently in the form of light blue spray paint.
The graffitied insinuation that “Micky G” had, in some way, shared information regarded as confidential was daubed on the stone wall that runs along the east side of the cenotaph grounds.
Although graffiti is commonplace in the local delinquent hot spot, this latest callous effort came especially close to Remembrance Sunday, in the week before hundreds would flock to the cenotaph to pay their respects to the fallen.
Theme park magnate, Apollo Van Dal has previously expressed an interest in acquiring the site to transform Hermitage Park into a Vandal Land venue. However, it is thought that talks stalled when Van Dal realised the entire town is essentially a hotbed of vandalism and antisocial behaviour.
All of us at the ‘Adviser wish the Friends of Hermitage Park well in their endeavours to combat the persistent outbursts of pubescent angst.
