The Parks Trust - which maintains the city’s Concrete Cows - has revealed that repainting the beloved bovines could cost up to £2,000.
The Trust received a report this morning (Wednesday) that someone has unofficially re-painted the Concrete Cows at Bancroft, Milton Keynes.
David Foster, Chief Executive, of The Parks Trust, said: “Public art is an integral part of the city and park landscape and as custodians of the cows we take damage of this nature very seriously. The cows are a part of Milton Keynes, they are a piece of public art and they should be valued by all. We will restore the cows to the artist’s, Liz Leyh, original vision.”
The Trust is a self-financing charity and the costs of repair and repainting the cows would otherwise be spent on maintaining parks in Milton Keynes.
The damage has been reported to Thames Valley Police.
