Damage to Sports Pavilion

In recent weeks there has been damage to the Sports Pavilion, the drain at the back has been blocked with various items, an edging cap has been removed from the gable end and panels removed from the toilet block roof. It is unclear who is responsible though sometimes groups of children gather in the area. This may be thought of as a victimless crime but we are all paying for the repairs through our Council Tax precept.
If you see anyone causing damage in or around the Pavilion/Play ground area, please report it to the Police by ringing 101 or report it online at: https://northyorkshire.police.uk/do-it-online/report-it/
