Appeal to find Stratford Park playground vandals


Stroud District Council is appealing for people to contact the police with information about damage to play equipment in Stratford Park.

Vandals pulled metal play panels out of the ground along with their concrete foundations and moved them several metres away, leaving an area unusable.

The ground has since been made safe by district council staff.

Cllr Chris Brine, Stroud District Council’s chair of Community Services & Licensing Committee said:

“This is an absolutely mindless act of vandalism. The panels are so heavy that it would have taken several people to move them.

Stratford Park playground is a fantastic facility, much loved by children, and is set to be more popular this year with so many families holidaying at home.

We’ll repair the damage, and our Neighbourhood Wardens are liaising with the police to step up patrols in the area.

The damage was noticed early on Thursday, July 22 and is likely to have taken place the night before.

If anyone has any information about this, please report it Gloucestershire Police on 101 quoting incident number 415 22/07/2021.”

A key priority of Stroud District Council is promoting the health & wellbeing of our communities.
