Vandals trash memorial hall signage

VANDALS have desecrated the New Norfolk War Memorial Hall. Only a week before Anzac Day, thoughtless idiots appear to have trashed the large lettering above the entrance to the hall in Circle St. Construction of the hall was funded by the local community and the building opened in 1955. The external walls have occasionally been subjected to vandalism in the form of graffiti but this attack represents the worst act of desecration in more than 50 years.

Fortunately the Anzac Day observances this Saturday at 6am and 11am will reassure local returned-servicemen and women that our town in general has more respect for the sacrifice of its veterans than those responsible for the damage to the War Memorial Hall.
