More Vandalism!

How many of you remember the amusing opening sequence of the film Cool Hand Luke, a 1967 American prison drama film , starring Paul Newman?.
In it "Luke" Jackson was arrested for cutting the "heads" off parking meters one drunken night using a pair of pipe cutters and spent 2 years in prison.

original pines

Until a couple of days ago anyone who walked up the road from Tarvin to the old Turkey Farm buildings would have seen planted either side of the road near to the entrance to Hockenhull Hall about 40 young pine/spruce type trees.

lopped pines

Unfortunately Tarvin has just suffered our version of this film sequence as about 25 of the young saplings have had their tops cut off. Several of the tree stems were at least an inch in diameter and so probably were vandalised using a pair of 'tree loppers'.

In real life such vandalism is not funny and so if you have any information about this incident do contact the police on the new non emergency 101 telephone number.
