Vandalism: Cllr Davies expresses concern over playground issues

Cllr Alun Davies has expressed his concern after a recce of Victoria Park the morning after it was vandalised for the second time. The popular playground was refurbished and improved considerably after the efforts of the local community transformed the area but has since been targeted by vandals, and in this instance was set on fire.

"Those responsible should be ashamed of themselves," explains Alun. "This vandalism was carried out by mindless people who clearly have nothing better to do than to ruin other people's fun. I have taken my kids there since the park reopened and it's full of happy children, parents, grandparents and carers. In such a short space of time the playground has become an amazing community asset."

"I have already contacted SADC to make this case a priority."
