The Parish Council tries to maintain Sandgate Park to a high standard for the benefit of residents and visitors. Unfortunately there has been some very anti social behaviour recently involving the pushing over of the portable toilets, which were located for the busy summer period, fire damage to play equipment, and worse.
As a consequence it has been necessary to remove the portable toilets for the time being while a vandal free solution can be found. We urge residents to be vigilant and to report anything to the parish clerks as soon as possible including evidence as to perpetrators. Whilst we have no reason to suspect that this small group of people are dangerous we would not suggest direct confrontation.
