Wooden stakes and signs marking the growth of wildflowers at a community field in Lakes End were vandalised last week.

Lakes End resident Sam scattered wild flower seeds on the field next to the village hall. She paid for wooden stakes and had signs attached, which were placed around the border of the field.

Last Wednesday trustees of Lakes End Village Hall discovered that every single stake and sign had either been stolen or broken.

Sam said: "I tried to do something nice for the community, to create a space for kids to go bug hunting, identify different bees and butterflies with mini fruit trees that everyone could benefit from including the wildlife. It makes me think what’s the point?"

Adrian Wright, who made the signs, has offered to replace them, and Abi from Tesco Express in March is replacing the stakes.
