Vandals cause ripples at lake

Walkers on Henley Lake’s wetlands trail were perturbed to come across several vandalised signs and a busted rubbish bin yesterday morning.

Masterton District Council Mayor Gary Caffell wasn’t aware of the damage when approached by the Times-Age, but said it was “frustrating, as the lake averages over 700 visitors daily and many more than that in holiday season – it’s one of our most popular tourist attractions”.

Caffell hoped that “some of those who are camped there will have knowledge of who did the damage”.

One of Masterton’s other tourist attractions, Queen Elizabeth Park, which was recently the international ‘Green Flag’ quality award for the fifth year in a row, has also been the target of vandals in the past three months, including a car illegally driven over the cricket pitch, an attempted break-in at Coronation Hall, hundreds of dollars of plants being stolen, and public toilets tagged.

  1. No respect at all vandals and with boy racers and hoons who have no respect I wonder 🤔 what happened 🤔. The district councils new the past government was coursing lawlessness around New Zealand🤔. A new government With better policies will put vandalism and boy racers plus hoons on notice that there actions have consequences.
