Vandalised: Allhallows Recreation Ground (children's play area)

Following an earlier post about the recreation ground in Allhallows being vandalised, further information has now been supplied by Kent Police:

Police in Medway are appealing for information after a playhouse was damaged at the recreation ground in Allhallows. It’s believed the damage was done on Friday 13 August, sometime between 8pm and 8.50pm. A playhouse was targeted and around £500 worth of damage was caused.

Local Neighbourhood Officer, PC Mick O’Meara said: ‘This appears to be mindless vandalism which serves absolutely no purpose. The people responsible need to think about their actions and realise that their behaviour has led to the playhouse not being able to be used and also a big repair bill. Kent Police in Medway will not tolerate any kind of criminal damage and if caught, those responsible will be arrested and could end-up with a criminal record.’

Anyone with information about the damage can contact Kent Police on 01622 690690, quoting crime reference number DY/012872/10.
