Many Cocking villagers will be aware of the RAF Bomber Command War Memorial in Green Park that contains a major sculpture by local artist Philip Jackson. You can refresh you memory by looking at our article on the Memorials unveiling from less than a year ago. The bad news is that two recent acts of vandalism have taken place at the Memorial along with a simliar attack at the Animals in War Memorial in nearby Park Lane. The sculpture itself does not seem to have been targeted, but slogans were painted defacing nearby walls.
Today, 6th June, the crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers have offered a potentially substantial reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the vandalism at the two war memorials. For further information see the Crimestoppers website.
