Vandalism of Pirate Ship

ship3Hunts District Council this morning had a report that someone had attacked the Pirate Ship with what looked like an axe or similar.

They have damaged lots of small areas on the boat but the main damage is to one of the main support sails which has not been left dangerous but may need to be replaced.  HDC are meeting with the rep from the company tomorrow morning on site to ascertain the damage.

This follows a report last week of dog poo being deliberately smeared on the slide on the smaller play area further along the main open space.

As a community we need to stand firm against a tiny minority who wish to destroy the good things that we have which benefit so many. If you have any information regarding either of these incidents then please report them to the police (you can call 101) or you can pass information directly to us and we will pass it on. If you do talk directly to the police regarding the Pirate Ship, please quote the crime number - CF0366661013 - as this will help them gather all relevant information on this.
