'Mindless' vandals have destroyed five signs promoting Diss's Park Alive music festival.
The signs, known as promotional 'ovals', were installed by the Rotary Club of Diss and District along Park Road including opposite the Thatcher's Needle pub.
Rotary club member Trevor Sayer said he was shocked at the vandalism, which is believed to have taken place overnight last Friday, August 5.
He said: 'We found them all smashed up on Saturday morning. They have obviously been kicked and smashed.'
Mr Sayer said the vandalism was 'very sad'.
He said he could not understand why someone would want to do such damage.
Mr Sayer said: 'It's a very mindless act of vandalism and I can't see what people get out of it.'

Mr Sawyer added: 'We spend more than £200 having them made locally and that's money that can't be put back into the community now.'
