We are sorry to have to report that a group of teenagers chose to deliberately smash numerous glass bottles on the recreation ground, by the youth shelter, the children’s play facilities and by the social club / memorial hall on Friday night. Their thoughtless actions left our community facility unsafe and a team of dedicated volunteers spent much time on Saturday morning clearing it all up so that the children and adults playing football, those using the kids play area and those walking their dogs could do so without risk of injury. The parish council would like to extend their sincere thanks to all those volunteers. If your child / teenager was hanging out with their mates on the recreation ground on Friday night we hope they are thoroughly ashamed. Unfortunately, whilst this is probably the worst incident of the summer, it isn’t the first. Rubbish has been dumped anywhere except in the bin, labels have been stuck all over the youth shelter and the youngsters keep trying to set light to the rear panel.
