Mindless vandals damage Peak District community centre

Mindless vandals have damaged a community centre in the Peak District.

Sometime between 5pm on Sunday, October 4, and 10am the following morning, offenders entered the grounds of The Nightingale Centre in Great Hucklow, damaging a bench and pulling down fencing around the play area.

The yobs also damaged the land by lighting fires and leaving rubbish behind.

PCSO Anthony Boswell, of Derbyshire police, said: “This is thoughtless damage that has ruined the facilities for local residents.

“We are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen individuals or groups acting suspiciously in the area so that we can identify the vandals responsible.”

Witnesses or anyone with information should call PCSO Anthony Boswell on 101, quoting crime number 43149/15, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
