MINDLESS vandals targeted the Moor’s new Play Area over the weekend.

On Saturday morning, the Friends of the Moor’s treasurer Robert Newton spotted that the main gate to the play area had been smashed up and new sign on the gate had been bent.

Robert removed the damaged gate and mended, strengthened, painted and reinstalled the gate by that afternoon.

The Friends of the Moor said they are disgusted by the act of vandalism and have reported the incident to the police.

If you witness any acts of vandalism, contact the police on 101.
