The ABC has the sad news that the historic graveyard at St Johns church in Reid (built by the Campbell family and consecrated in 1845) has been really done over by some human excrement.
“In some senses we’re all quite traumatised because our gravestones have been damaged and some of them quite incredibly,” he said.
“They’ve been completely smashed some of them and it would be very hard to restore them to what they were.
“Unfortunately a lot of them are marble headstones, some of the oldest in the graveyard and some of the headstones that we love the most.”
Reverend Black says part of Canberra’s history has been lost.
And this is why we can’t have nice things.
