The Cost of Vandalism

Vandalism can become very expensive for a Parish Council. One of the items of wooden gym equipment at the Recreation Ground was destroyed as a result of a couple of youngsters pushing and pulling the two posts holding the equipment upright. The cost to repair/replace the equipment is in the region of £2,000. At this stage in time, we are unable to afford to replace the item and it has been taken down. We have CCTV footage available which has been shared with the Police.
