Nodody’s proud

My parents waited two years for the tree outside their house to be replaced after the previous one died so you can imagine their sadness when they awoke to find some mindless person had snapped it completely off.

The beer can lying beside it and the reports from neighbours of a noisy disturbance in the early hours suggests this was an act of pure vandalism by someone under the influence.

With budget cuts, there are precious few trees being replaced in our streets and I have no idea whether this one will be replaced again. So to those who did it, I hope you feel proud of yourselves, because no one else is going to be!
