Respect gardens please

LETTER

Possibly as a result of my recent letter on vandalism in the Turanga Gardens, the destruction of plants and materials continues. All remaining buds on the Dublin Bay rose have been torn off and a relatively rare tree removed between around midday on Wednesday and 9.30am on Thursday.

If the culprits have a problem with what we are trying to achieve, or a personal grudge against either myself or those on our team, then we would like to discuss your concerns with you.

Alternatively, we appeal to you to respect our efforts for the benefit of the whole community.

Are you not able to get some sort of motion-activated camera set up, to see what's going on and gather evidence?
Very strange how those out-of-the-way gardens continually get picked on.
Plenty of people would have died in that area, in the old hospital. I guess this wacky suggestion will probably rightly be ridiculed, but could it be the work of a poltergeist?
High time to get the police paranormal division on to the case. That could be rather entertaining, if the recent 'Wellington Paranormal' TV series is anything to go by . . .

Spooky, you're right, your suggestion is wacky.
