A number of banners that were placed outside Northgate High School to encourage speeding drivers to slow down when driving past have been slashed by vandals.
The signs and banners were placed outside of the school last week due to concerns about drivers going too fast during school opening and closing hours and are sponsored by Sowerby’s estate agents.
Staff from Sowerby’s visited the new signs last week but when staff arrived at the school on Monday morning the banners were found slashed in half.
Calum Macdonald of Northgate High School said: “It’s a great shame considering the message, the effort and of course the kind donation from Sowerbys and we have only just had the article in the Dereham Times of its success.
“My thoughts are of disgust and dispair to think someone has had satisfaction and pleasure out of destroying something aimed at safeguarding our children, potentially saving lives.
“I do not wish this to cloud the brilliant teamwork and community team spirit shown.”
