IT took petty vandals just three days to wreck the yarnbombing on trees in Maylands town centre.
Bayswater councillor Catherine Ehrhardt, the city’s placemaker Emma Snow and Creative Maylands’ Kate Thomson had a walking bee recently, installing knitted, rainbow skivvies and polls on some Eighth Avenue trees.
A few days later, three of them had been pulled down.
“This is why Maylands can’t have nice things,” Cr Ehrhardt told us.
“We have no idea who did it, or why, but it would have been nice for everyone to participate in the joy that a little bit of colour brings.”
Public artworks and buildings in Maylands have also been targeted by paint bombers over the last month.
