A SPIKE in vandalism and anti-social behaviour at a village recreation ground has become a cause for concern among residents and parish leaders after broken glass, debris left from deliberate fires and litter have been spotted in recent weeks.
Parish leaders are appealing to parents in Forsbrook and Blythe Bridge, after the village hall recreation ground has fallen victim to anti-social behaviour.
Police have also stepped up patrols in the area, in a bid to crack down on the disruptive behaviour at what is normally a family-friendly area within the village.
The first case of anti-social behaviour was reported on Sunday, June 24 when the parish council was made aware of a large amount of broken glass and cans which had been strewn across the recreation ground.
