Railings around the Fountain in Broad Street, March, which were damaged by motorists twice this year, are being urgently repaired ahead of Remembrance Day.
Councillor Jan French put out an appeal for help to get the railings back in order after they were hit for the second time on Tuesday.
Cllr French said she was disappointed "they have been damaged again. It's so sad."
Her social media appeal for help "for anyone out there that could do a 'tart up'" prompted a response from Artistic Metalica of Hostmoor Avenue.
She said they turned early today to help and county council highways officials also responded quickly.

Temporary barriers were initially put in place but highways workers are expected to complete repairs by Saturday.
