During these unprecedented times of a coronavirus emergency when communities across Scotland have come together to assist the vulnerable, the sick and the elderly it is sickening that mindless sectarian vandals have targeted one of our halls.
Grand Master Jim McHarg is dismayed to once again report that in the early hours of this morning Rutherglen Orange Hall was vandalised with a message daubed on the walls.
This is a religiously motivated attack, all the more unbelievable when the country is in lockdown. What kind of imbecile breaks government guidelines to carry out such an attack?
Orange Halls are established in communities’ right across Scotland and are often used by a whole range of local groups, not just by members of the Orange Order. We have reported this latest attack to Police Scotland and we hope that those responsible are identified and prosecuted.
