THOUGHTLESS vandals have destroyed the newest tourist attraction in Perth and its owner is willing to pay $1000 to find out who did it. Ken Plumbstead has spent the past eight years battling red-tape to erect the Perth Windmill, and is now said to be angered by an attack which will cost him more than $5000 to fix.
“I’ve spent the last two years building the windmill and I finally finished – then this happened,” he said.
“I am just devastated.
“I know I have some strong critics, but I also have a lot of support, and in the end its the children who are missing out.”
The vandals destroyed the attraction’s figurines, taking off with Miss Oxygen and damaging Sir Lancelot, who on the hour act out a story to teach children about greenhouse gas emissions.
They also destroyed other electrical equipment, the windmill’s blades and a grinding machine, which will take Mr Plumbstead months to repair.
Mr Plumbstead said he has always been fascinated by windmills and when he was young he helped to set up windmills in poverty stricken areas in China and Thailand.
But now Mr Plumbstead said he has almost lost all his passion and fighting spirit to educate people about windmills, saying another attack would mean the end for the attraction.
“I’ll have a go at repairing it this time but if they do it again they can win – it’s just too much for me,” he said.
“In the end its the people and the children that miss out because this is all about teaching people to be conscious about power.”
Mr Plumbstead said he is willing to give a $1000 reward for any information which leads to the instigators or the perpetrators of the incident.
