Witnesses sought after flower troughs vandalised in Godalming
Surrey Police is seeking witnesses after vandals targeted flower troughs in Godalming Town Centre between 9pm on Wednesday 30 May and 7am on Thursday 31 May 2018.
Flower troughs in the High Street - part of a community initiative called Floral Godalming - were overturned and flowers emptied.
Waverley Neighbourhood Sergeant Mel Sefton said: “I and the rest of the Waverley Safer Neighbourhood team were disappointed to learn that someone thought it was acceptable to behave like this in the town, particularly with Godalming In Bloom just around the corner. The flowers have been placed there by Godalming Town Council for the enjoyment of the community and not to be damaged.
“This type of behaviour will not be tolerated and I would urge anyone with any information about who is responsible to contact Surrey Police. We would also like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to the members of the community that stepped in and helped to clear up and repair the damage caused.”
