Vandals slash Falmouth Splash banner
12:48pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in News
The actions of vandals who wrecked the colourful banner in Grove Place which promotes this month's Falmouth Splash Festival have been condemned.
The banner, which is made up of two, 20 foot sections, has been split down much of its length by someone using a sharp blade. It has now been removed, but there are hopes it can be repaired.
Richard Wilcox Falmouth BID manager, who has organised the Splash festival, said: “It is really disappointing that we have been forced to take down the Splash banner due to the damage caused.
“The banner was installed 12 months ago as part of the BID funded Splash Festival and has been viewed and enjoyed by thousands of visitors and locals. We have received dozens of positive comments during that time as well.
“The banner showcased artwork from artists who have been inspired by Falmouth, past and present including a number by local schoolchildren and so if it can be fixed we will and look to re-hang.
“We received good support from the Watersports Centre who were also extremely pleased and supportive of it being there - all in all a real community effort.”
