I have been following with interest a discussion on the local community Facebook page.
It started yesterday, a beautiful sunny day with many people out and about, when a local lady commented on how disappointed she was to see parents allowing their young children to climb all over and sit on the sculpture in the town square, fearing that it may cause damage.
Her comment sparked a quite hostile response from several parents who said that children should be free to do what they like and enjoy themselves. When it was suggested that they should also be taught to have respect for others' property they seemed to find that quite amusing.
The gist of the comments posted there - and on another previous discussion regarding the pandemic - appeared to suggest that respect was outdated and that the older generation and their thoughts (the original poster is only around 50!) are not important as we have had our lives and it is only the younger generation now that is important.
Well. That's us told then.
This is the sculpture...the Celtic King Orry playing chess with the Viking King Olaf
