This never seems to happen in Regina
If those damned vandals don't knock it off, we may have to change the name of the village altogether:
Residents living in a graffiti-plagued village in Merseyside are being asked to consider changing its name to tackle vandals who alter signs in the village.
Lunt, which dates back to Medieval times, has been repeatedly targeted by vandals who change the "L" to a "C".
Not everyone is pushing for the change, though:
David Roughley, whose family has farmed in Lunt since 1851, added: "At the end of the day we live in Lunt and we don't want to change because of a few yobs. It is the vandals who should change, not the village."
The proposed new name is "Launt," with no change in pronunciation.
