Yeh – l know – to some it’s a good example of Victorian sentimental slush – but the marble statue of Rebecca at the Well, on the north side of Bath Abbey, doesn’t deserve to be sprayed with paint.
It’s been vandalized – as has the paving stones that surround it – by someone who thinks it’s funny to impose their sad little idea of having fun by despoiling a tiny corner of the city’s heritage.
Like it or loath it – l am sure a lot of people over the years, have agreed to meet at that former drinking fountain.
Graffiti continues to leave its ugly mark on our city and l see not even the Southgate Shopping Centre – with its ‘army’ of security people and street cleaners is immune to attack.
I hope someone is given time to trawl through the CCTV images and take action that could lead to identifying the culprits.
