NURSERY ROAD REC AND SKATE PARK VANDALISM
Sadly, last weekend saw more vandalism on Nursery Road Recreation Ground!
One of the bar's in the fence around the play park has been pulled out and twisted, also a bolt holding the fence to
a post has been removed.
One of the Urban ramp signs has been kicked off the fencing around the top of the big ramp.
Luckily Cllr Phoenix noticed the damage and was able to remove some of the damaged metal from the park.
The metal had been ripped off the equipment leaving jagged edges, presenting a serious safety issue.
Vandalism of this type can present serious risk of injury to children and cost hundreds of pounds to repair.
There has also been a lot of littering including empty beer cans etc. Any person found misusing the park in this way
will be prosecuted.
PCSO Wiggins has been requested to keep an extra watch in this area.
