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 the signs would probably not be replaced as the event is to take place on Saturday.

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.'

Park Alive will take place at Park Pavilion from 5.30pm. For more information turn to page 6.

Anyone who knows more about the vandalism should call the police on 101.
