Mindless vandals strike in Rushden parks ruining toilets and artworks


Vandals have hit parks and open spaces in Rushden.

Rushden Town Council has reported damage to the multi play unit in Ascot Road, to the newly installed mural at Spencer Park Pavilion and even to the accessible toilets at Spencer Park.

The council’s website reported: “We’ve also experienced a lot of bin fires and smashed glass bottles.

“This type of mindless vandalism not only spoils the town, but also wastes our limited resources, thus impacting on future improvements in other parks.

“We are treating these incidents as criminal damage and will be actively pursuing them further.

“Therefore, we would be grateful if anyone has any information regarding these incidents, can they please contact us in confidence on 01933 316216 or at info@rushdentowncouncil.gov.uk”
