Vandalised fence and gate in the Rec

Vandalised fence and gate in the Rec

To make parents/carers of children using the rec aware that we've taped up the fence and gate due to vandalism.

We have recently paid £290 + VAT for a repair to the fence and gate which has been vandalised by adults (not children).

We are looking into other options to keep children safe but in the meantime it's cordoned off with hazard tape.
