Green team comes clean to restore vandalised Dudley sculpture
3:00pm Monday 19th August 2013 in News
DUDLEY volunteers have been fighting back after vandals struck to deface a canal-side landmark.
Members of Dudley Green Team cleaned up a sculpture celebrating a world-renowned Dudley anchor and chain makers Hingleys after yobs scrawled 'who cares' across the landmark.
Members of the team, which carries out community projects to provide healthy activities and social interaction for adults with learning difficulties, took care of repairs to restore the sculpture to its former glory.
June Hodgetts, from Dudley Canal Trust Trips, said: “The Dudley canal network is a much-loved recreational facility in the town, steeped in the history of the areas industrial past, and the sheer number of visitors it receives shows that people really do care about it.
“Our thanks once again go out to the Green Team, who already work hard to ensure the waterway routes are litter free and neat and tidy, for their help in restoring this vandalised sculpture."
