Letter to the Editor: A worrying incident of vandalism at playground


Dear Editor,

Cainscross Town Council has contacted Stroud Times to bring a worrying incident of vandalism to the attention of the community.  The incident involves an amount of broken glass being left on the slide in the Victory Park playground.

We are very proud of the playground which was renewed last year, and which has received fantastic feedback from the community.  There have been minor acts of vandalism, and any act of vandalism which spoils the enjoyment families get from using the playground is hugely disappointing.   But vandalism which presents danger to young children and their carers is considerably worse.

We check our playgrounds and deal with any issues on a daily basis but, unfortunately, a little girl suffered cuts and grazes before the glass was detected.  This was awful for her and for her family.  We appeal to playground users to be vigilant and to report to us any incidents they see or any vandalism they find, especially where it poses a danger.  We are studying our CCTV footage to try and identify those responsible.

Jeni Marshall

Town clerk
