Reports of Vandalism

In these unprecedented times, our local community have been making an outstanding effort to follow government instruction on social distancing which is helping to protect the NHS and save lives. Local businesses are working hard to adapt and provide, whilst many individuals have even volunteered their time to help others and collectively, the town is really coming together.

However unfortunately a very small number of individuals are not listening to government instruction and failing to join this community effort in the fight against COVID-19.

On 29th March between 1.45pm-2.45pm two individuals wearing hooded sweatshirts lifted a pushbike over the wall of The Almonry Gardens and caused criminal damage to several chairs and a large bench, some of which were recovered from the pond. These youth were recorded on CCTV and the incident has been reported to the police. There have also been separate reports of fly tipping at the recreation ground; ruining the environment for others.

It is a great shame that there are some individuals in our town who are intent on causing deliberate criminal damage in these already difficult times.

Hopefully this will be a reminder for us all to work together and play a positive role in making Battle safe for all.
