Further to previous updates, the water fountain will be removed for refurbishment this Thursday morning, 17th June. Parking around the water fountain will be postponed for a time while this takes place.

There has been a recent spate of vandalism around the park, including:

  • The 4 bollards and 2 small boulders that were in place to allow parking to be managed by the Bowls club just up from the water fountain have been completely removed, which means the padlocks must have been cropped and a van or similar used to remove them. This took place sometime over the night of Friday 11th and before 7am on Saturday 12th June. In addition the Bowls  Club itself was targeted with vandalism to their bins.
  • At The Ark last weekend 3 windows were smashed.
  • Scoops last night had door handles damaged in attempted break-ins alongside damage to bins.

Unfortunately it does seem that this vandalism and anti-social behaviour is prevalent at the moment with the long, warm evenings. We ask for the public’s help to ensure all incidences are reported to the police. Even if there is no direct action they can take it helps to make a case for increased patrols.

Thanks for your help.
