Showing the enormously positive spirit of the local community and the Friends of West View Park, five members of the group plus two children met to write messages of support following the defacement of the war memorial at West View Park.
Hopefully the colour and messages of positivity will do something to balance the negativity of this act. Messages included ‘So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole world’, ‘the earth is one country and mankind it’s citizens’ and ‘One earth’.
People do need a place to express themselves but open dialogue is the answer.
As the group were giving the positive message of unity and respect, many of the passers by thanked them for their efforts.
