NURSERY ROAD RECREATION GROUND AND SKATEPARK VANDALISM
Sadly, there has been more vandalism on Nursery Road Recreation Ground !

One of the bars in the fence around the play park has been pulled out and twisted, and a bolt holding the fence to a post has been removed. Also one of the Urban ramp signs has been kicked off the fencing around the top of the big ramp. 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.
