Stanwell Play Area - Memorial Bench

Residents and especially parents need to be aware of the damage to a bench in the Play Area that was set on fire yesterday morning (Monday, 21st September). This was an act of arson and vandalism which is totally unacceptable behaviour. This was really dangerous and had the potential of causing serious harm/consequences to both vegetation close by but more importantly to other children, parents or carers visiting the Play Area.


The bench in question was a memorial bench purchased in memory of a family member who had given a great deal of service to this village and should have been respected and not trashed in the manner it was.

I would like to thank, on behalf of the Parish Council, the farmer and a resident living close by who eventually managed to put the fire out before the situation escalated.
