A SCULPTURE has been destroyed by vandals.

A sculpture - named Eve - from The Fold in Bransford, near Worcester, has been vandalised.

A Facebook post yesterday afternoon said: “We are absolutely devastated that ‘Eve’, our beautiful sculpture that overlooks the lake, has been completely destroyed by vandals.

“We are so sad that this has happened and implore you guys - our wonderful community - to come forward with any information you may have.

“Our nature trails have seen an unprecedented amount of visitors over the last few weeks.

“Whilst we are delighted to be able to share the beautiful surroundings with the wider community, the increase in visitors has also had its downsides.

“We are having to do continuous litter picks as people are not taking their rubbish home. And now this - we are so upset that it has happened.”

A donations money box has been installed in the car park which allows visitors to leave some cash after using the facilities.

The money will be used to upkeep the nature trails.

The Fold has its own farm shop which encourages sustainable living via the cafe, a natural therapy centre, care farm and nature trail.

Mum, Tanya Gledhill, has sent a photo of her two children in front of the remaining sculpture, Adam.

She used to visit The Fold with her family, however, she doesn’t anymore as she claims teenagers have been using the area to drink, have barbecues and leave their litter during the coronaviurs pandemic.

She said: “I’m incredibly upset.

"The number of cars parked at the Bank House roundabout in the afternoons over the past few weeks has been ridiculous. There are so many teenagers down there, hanging out, drinking, having BBQs and leaving litter. It’s become a no-go zone for families like us, not least because it’s impossible to socially distance.”

“The police should be involved really.”
