VANDALS have been accused of risking Pwllheli’s reputation after they destroyed a number of flower tubs in the town’s centre over the bank holiday weekend.
Pwllheli residents woke up on Easter Monday to find that floral displays in the town centre had been vandalised overnight.
Several tubs, installed to enhance the image of the town, had been overturned leaving the Maes area in a “shoddy state”.
Pwllheli North councillor Michael Sol Owen said: “Overthrowing a number of large flower containers in the Maes, Pwllheli late on Sunday night was an act of vandalism against the community.
“It’s sad to see this happening as it’s a cost to the authorities and the reputation of the town.
“My advice to the perpetrators would be why not own up and offer to do some voluntary work around town, clearing up litter to compensate for their foolishness.”
Former town councillor Jonathan Roberts was also upset.
“It’s disgusting that some people would do this,” he told the Cambrian News.
“The flower tubs were there to brighten the town. They were placed at great expense to make the town attractive to visitors.
“It beggars belief to walk round town to see this detritus.”
