Over the past few years the Parish Council and staff have worked hard to improve the facilities within the playing field, only to have some of the equipment vandalised and in need of repair within months of being installed. The Cemetery is also being blighted by anti-social behaviour and mindless vandalism, with benches being broken or defaced and tributes being removed from graves, leaving families distraught . It is heart breaking for all those involved, as well as the added inconvenience to both staff and visitors.
In a bid to solve this problem, reduce crime and the perception of crime, we are looking to secure and funding CCTV within the Cemetery and the Playing Field. We hope it will deter further events of this nature, or at least reduce the effect that this behaviour has on our Community. The Parish Council will make provision for the upkeep once the system is in place and we have a limited budget that we will put towards the costs, but we do not want to choose one site over the other as both areas are in need of additional security. If you can help, no matter how small your donation, your generosity would be very much appreciated.
