VANDALISM AND GRAFITTI ON PARISH COUNCIL
We spent a lot of time effort and money to entertain young people over the summer. Unfortunately we have had costly damage to the matting in the children's play area and graffiti which is on a trail from and to Balby. We have informed the police and we are tapping into local intelligence. We are also checking our CCTV footage. If we identify the culprits they will be made to pay.
Police have some information, if you have any more please report to police or inform us.
It is very unfortunate that these brainless idiots have meant that the children's play area is closed until further notice whilst the council evaluates how much repairs and rectification work will be...however it has to be said that we cannot and will not tolerate this thoughtless behaviour but equally we cannot keep spending money on rectification work.
Apologies to all those who will be affected. Another example of the few spoiling it for the many.
Elections for DMBC Councillors, Parish Councillors, Police & Crime Commissioner and Elected Mayor took place on Thursday 6th May.
