Lunt face problems with smart aleck vandals

Lunt villagers sick of graffiti

A campaign has been launched in

the historic village

of Lunt to change its name because

vandals keep defacing road signs,

ANANOVA reports.


The not-so-witty pranksters constantly change

the village’s name to an extremely rude swear

word, reports the Daily Telegraph.

However, the proposal is dividing villagers

in the Merseyside community who say they

should not have to give up a name that has

been around since the 13th century.

Martyn Ball, a retired police officer and

prospective Conservative councillor, is

urging residents to support the move

because he is fed up with the graffiti

which greets visitors to the village.

He said:

“We are all painfully aware of the repeated

times our village sign is defaced by

mindless yobs who change the L to a C.

“Drive in every day and you see a very

offensive word.”

Dr Ball has suggested Launt as an

alternative name, which he says would

be pronounced the same. However, others

in the village say the vandals should not

be allowed to ruin their heritage.

Steward Dobson, 84,

a parish councillor, said:

“This village is very, very old and

people don’t want the name changed.”

David Roughley, whose family has farmed

in Lunt since 1851, added: “At the end of

the day we live in Lunt and we don’t want

to change because of a few yobs. It is

the vandals who should change,

not the village.”

  1. Thank you for the post,
    I am really interested and was wondering
    if anyone else had any other related posts

    I like writing articles myself
    and would like to gather as much data as I can.
