TEN flowering displays that forming part colourful decorations in Hoylake were tipped over by a hooded vandal on Friday.
Volunteers from the Friends of Hoylake and Meols Gardens and open spaces group helped to restore them following the incident, believed to have taken place in the early hours.
The tubs are on permanent loan from Wirral Council and the plants inside them were installed by Thingwall Nurseries.
Staff from the nurseries joined volunteers on Friday as the were being repaired. Each tub had originally cost around £75 to fill.
Calling for community support in the fight to tackle vandalism in the town, the group's vice chairman Vicki Clarke told the Globe: "I couldn't believe it when I had a phone call telling me that this had happened.
"We want to make Hoylake a nice place to live and it's a small minority like this who spoil it for everyone."
Mrs Clarke, who has called a public meeting to discuss a range of topics including vandalism in the town, at Melrose Hall, on September 4 at 7.30pm, continued: "A lot of work has gone into installing these pots and the local community has been very supportive of the project.
"Words fail me about those who did this. But if we can catch whoever it is they should be prosecuted. If you see any vandalism, report it straight away, so we can put a stop to it."
Hoylake Neighbourhood Sergeant Steve McGuiness said: "A hooded offender wearing grey jogging pants and a white top was seen running through the area at around this time and its thought he may have tipped them over."http://www.thisiswirral.co.uk/display.var.1647355.0.hooded_vandal_wrecks_displays.php
