questionnaire. deliberate act of vandalism, equipment left in dangerous state

Sorry its been a while since I posted anything – January seems to have been quite a hectic month one way or another!

Thanks to all who completed a questionnaire re the Recreation Grounds and this has given Council a good handle on what you would like to see installed and what age groups are predominately visiting the grounds. Council is now looking at alternatives from various companies and hopefully this will be achieved by tapping into available grants.

Sorry to tell you that early in January there was a deliberate act of vandalism carried out on the large piece of equipment in the Wallsend Road Recreation Ground – thanks to a local resident who reported this promptly so that the unit could be isolated until made safe. An unknown person (or persons) cut the bolts supporting the walkway leaving the equipment in a dangerous state; this is not likely to have been a child as a fair amount of force (and possibly large bolt cutters) would have been required!

It is a sad reflection on society that someone could have endangered small children in such a way. If anyone did see something suspicious around that time then I’d be grateful if they could pass on descriptions; we need to stop this mindless vandalism.
