Mile Oak Recreation Ground to be Closed at Night

Mile Oak rec gateAfter several incidents of vandalism at Mile Oak recreation ground, Fazeley Town Council have taken the decision to install new gates on the entrance and close and lock them every night.

Mazeley Youth Club was recently broken into for the third time in the last two years, there have been several occurrences of smashed glass bottles being found around the recreation ground included by the children’s play area and the new bench that was installed adjacent to the BMX track has had to be replaced after being vandalised.

Cllr Simon Clements, Fazeley’s Town Mayor, said, “This has not been an easy decision for Fazeley Town Council to take to close the recreation area at night, but after so many unnecessary and unwanted acts of mindless damage and destruction Councillors have said enough is enough.”

From Monday 9th September 2013, Mile Oak recreation ground will be closed every night at 23:00 and will not be open again until 08:00 the next morning.
