Playing Field Damage

It has been reported that there has recently been some inappropriate behaviour on our village playing field.

The perimeter fence of the croquet pitch, and the pitch itself, have been damaged. It is thought that this was caused by the use of bicycles on the pitch. There have also been reports of children climbing on the pavilion roof.

It is good that children, whether from the village or visiting, are using the playing field and I wish we could install swings and other play equipment for them to enjoy, but the necessary Lottery grant is, sadly, unobtainable.

Can I politely ask you to pass on a reminder to children, whether from the village or visiting, to enjoy the playing field safely and please treat the facilities respectfully so that they can be enjoyed by all.
