Bays' bus shelter vandalised
One of five painted bus shelters at The Bays has been vandalised with graffiti.
"It's extremely disappointing," said Group president Ms Cathy Gleeson.
"They've been left untouched for years and are much loved by the community, so really it's quite a shame.
The shelters were hand painted by local artist Mr Jim Doe four years ago.
They show scenes of the natural world's beauty common around The Bays and also incorporate designs and illustrations by local children.
It is not known exactly when the vandalism occurred to the shelter in Horsfield Rd.
Committee member Ms Naomi Veitch said Horsfield Bay was currently experiencing an increase in vandalism.
"It's very disheartening to learn about the graffiti," she said.
"Of late the area has had an issue with tagging but so far it has only been signage that's been targeted."
