Activists rally to help mobility shop owners targeted by graffiti louts

Solihull Editorial 29th Sep, 2020   0

KIND-HEARTED activists have come to the aid of mobility shop owners who were targeted by vandals.

Alan and Marguerite James from the Solihull Mobility Centre (A M Mobility), Old Lode Lane, had the costly graffiti daubed on their store front on September 14.

Other businesses close to Old Lode Lane were also tagged, including V Spa Health and Beauty (pictured).

But after their shocking plight was featured in the Observer, volunteers from the Solihull Conservative Association brought cleaning fluid and scrubbed the shutters to help out the pair.

Marguerite told the Observer: “A former Conservative councillor, Phil Thomas, dropped in and said he comes to this area of Solihull a couple of days a week to help out locally.

“He brought a bottle out from the back of his car to clean up the paint.

“He left us some spray-on product and said he would come back – then in the afternoon, a lady from the Solihull Conservatives also came in, Yvonne Clements. She brought a team along on Sunday and they spent some time making it look the best it can be at the moment.

“It is reassuring to know people are willing to help us when we need it.”
