THE destruction of several Anzac Day wreaths laid at the New Norfolk cenotaph was an act of total disrespect, Derwent Valley Mayor Martyn Evans said.

Arriving at work yesterday morning, council workers noticed several wreaths, laid by community members during Anzac Day commemorations on Tuesday, had been destroyed.

“To say it’s disappointing is an understatement,” Cr Evans said.

“It’s an act of total disrespect … we have a rich heritage, a rich Anzac heritage.

“My grandfather fought in the war and his father fought in the war and relations are still serving now.”

Cr Evans said the council would be discussing the matter with Tasmania Police.

New Norfolk RSL sub-branch secretary Brian Glover said at least seven wreaths had been destroyed. More than 60 had been laid by community groups and individuals.

A local retailer, who did not wish to be identified, said she saw wreaths had been pulled apart, squished and destroyed.

“The few people who have mentioned it to me today have all said how horrified they are with the lack of respect, especially for the names of the people that are listed on the cenotaph itself,” she said.
