Vandals have once again damaged plants which have been put in by volunteers to make the village more attractive.
Late Friday night or early Saturday morning there was more anti social behaviour in the village when dwarf conifer plants were ripped out of the planters on the railings above Waitrose car park on London Road.
Kelvin Briggs of Alderley Edge in Bloom said "Christine Munro discovered some of the conifers had been placed on the large planter outside Barclays Bank whilst on her early morning dog walk. Possibly a good Samaritan picked them up from the pavement rather than leave London Road a mess."
Not to be deterred by the vandals, volunteers from Alderley Edge in Bloom took to the streets this morning (Saturday, 17th February) to replant the shrubs and restore the planters to their former glory. Sadly one conifer was missing and two were damaged.
This is the third incident in the village in recent times. Last month a planter located outside the Royal Bank of Scotland was smashed and the bulbs were pulled out of the soil.
Kelvin added "It is hoped that this time around the Parish Council funded CCTV system in the village will have captured some images and the sad culprits can be identified."
Members of Alderley Edge Parish Council are going to the CCTV Centre on Monday, 19th February, to ensure the service they are receiving is adequate.
In the meantime Councillor Rachael Grantham is contacting the CCTV manager and asking him to review the footage, as well as contacting our PCSO and reporting the incident.
Councillor Rachael Grantham said "It is very disappointing that people feel the need to cause damage in this way. There are many volunteers from various groups in the village that work very hard to keep the village looking lovely, they do a fantastic job and it is such a shame that a few are ruining this hard work."
