Last night some unseen youths set alight and destroyed the bench that overlooked the pond at Raw Nook Nr. This morning I found the remnants of the fire and empty beer bottles. These mindless people have not only spoilt the enjoyment of genuine members of the public who liked to sit and watch the wildlife but for themselves as youngsters used to sit on the bench as well.
Lately I have noticed the bench was becoming a ‘Meeting Place’ for people who didn’t respect the area. It is sad for the genuine people who gained enjoyment from sitting at the location but ‘ I now wonder what vandalism would be next? and therefore not replacing the bench may be the way forward.
