Anti social Behaviour on the play parks

Sad to report there was a good deal of broken glass strewn over the playparks this morning in a manner that suggests it may have been deliberate. This is incredibly irresponsible in an area where little ones are enjoying the facilities and meant the play parks had to be closed all morning. It has been reported to the Police.

Patrols are organised acccording to where the Police have most feedback about concerns, so if you witness any anti-social behaviour, whether in the play parks, on the skatepark or anywhere else on the Recreation Ground, please do report it in.

You can do this by calling 101, via the force online web chat function,or by completing an on-line reporting form.  (31/03/21)
