Jubilee Hall Vandalism

The construction works currently being undertaken adjacent to Jubilee Hall in Horndean is being targeted by a group of approximately 12 -15 youngsters on bicycles, who congregate on Jubilee Field and the neighbouring open space.

Residents have reported that this group aged between 11 – 15 yrs, regularly force entry into the construction compound causing damage to the partially built walls and climbing up on to the roof.

On Tuesday 17 March at 4.30pm the group was seen within the compound throwing large stones at the windows of Jubilee Hall resulting in 3 large windows being broken. This being the third occurrence of such damage.

The Chief Officer attended the site and spoke to 2 members of the group who were openly discussing their ‘exploits’, after an exchange of words the group quickly disbanded.

The ongoing replacement of the windows is costly, and it is unfortunate that the youngsters are oblivious to the fact that the cost of the repairs will be paid from the public purse, to which their parents contribute.

If members of the community have any information or witness any further acts of trespass and criminal damage please could the matter be reported to the police or the parish office – or Tel: 02392597766.
