Wheelbarrow tipped in suspected vandalism

A DECORATIVE wheelbarrow full of plants in a Henley Street was knocked over in a suspected vandal attack.

A DECORATIVE wheelbarrow full of plants in a Henley Street was knocked over in a suspected vandal attack.

There are a pair of the makeshift planters in Upton Close, off Reading Road, to support the town?s entry into Britain in Bloom. On Wednesday morning, one was found on its side with all the compost and plants tipped out.

Caroline Langler, a member of the Henley in Bloom committee, who had planted up the two barrows, said: ?Obviously it?s annoying someone has knocked it over because I had enormous pleasure doing them both.

?When I was doing them people were stopping to ask about them and telling me how wonderful they were. People really appreciate them.? Mrs Langler, of Queen Street, said she was just thankful the barrow wasn?t pushed into the road.

Earlier this month the judges for Britain in Bloom and the Entente Florale Europe competition visited Henley and were given tours.

They were shown the wheelbarrows which were designed to show the ?guerilla gardening? that goes on in Henley.

Mrs Langler has now righted and replanted the wheelbarrow. She said she would liaise with the town council?s park services staff about securing both wheelbarrows.
