Bury St Edmunds business chief blasts vandals who have defaced town centre Covid-19 safety signs
The chief executive of an organisation which supports town centre business has blasted vandals who have defaced new Covid-19 safety signs.
Mark Cordell of the Bury St Edmunds Business Improvement District (BID) made his comments in a tweet this afternoon after vandals scrawled on one sign and ripped the corner off another.
Mr Cordell, who has headed up the BID since 2010 said: "Who on earth feels the need to deface, damage or destroy reassurance messages that for some gives them the confidence to visit own centre supporting businesses?"
He added: "And another thing! When did personal hygiene & washing hands regularly become such a contentious issue?!"
The signs have been placed around town as lockdown eases to welcome shoppers back and are part of the #burybouncingback campaign.
