The three vandal attacks in the Eurobodalla in recent weeks are causing police and community members concern.
It is heartbreaking for community groups to see their work destroyed or damaged.
Bodalla artist Ritchie Sealey was devastated to know the mural at Broulee he had put such care into had been vandalised.
The sporting groups that rely on Kyla Park and neighbours were upset to see the recent damage to the grounds.
The workers at the Kianga sewage works now have a frustrating and unnecessary clean-up ahead – again. See some of the damage pictured left.
Police are investigating all these incidents.
One vandal attack is cause for concern.
Several within a short space of time suggests a bigger problem.
If anyone has any information about these incidents they should phone Crime Stoppers on 1300 333 000.
On a happier note, we hope you enjoy the lovely story about George Findley in this edition and online.
He is a remarkable man, 100 years old, or not.
From the little boy inspired by the first solo flight from England by Bert Hinkler, to the adult who kept our RAAF aircraft safe, Mr Findley seems to have been driven by curiosity and an eagle-eyed attention to detail.
Are you getting a high-flying theme here?
Throw in Bill Haley and the Comets and Mr Findley’s preoccupations are positively planetary.
Only his love of the bass guitar appears to have kept him grounded.
You can visit our Narooma News Facebook page to see and hear Mr Findley making a warm speech on Thursday at Dalmeny IRT, where he enjoyed not one, but two cakes.
Our story about the injured turtle, Timmy Two, in this edition is also a lovely read.
Thanks to the efforts of the several professionals and volunteers involved.
Kym Sutherland at Narooma Veterinary Hospital was the first professional called in.
Then a Batemans Bay vet and a Batemans Bay dentist were called in.
A wildlife volunteer provided the ongoing care.
All actions are typical of our caring shire.
The actions of a few vandals, no matter how much prominence there “work” seems to gain, can never outweigh the genuine good will of this community.
