VANDALS’ GRAFFITI SPREE
Cars, walls and football club all targeted as spray painting yobs cause misery
BEACONSFIELD has been hit by a spate of vandalism in recent weeks, with cars, public buildings and the town’s football club all being targeted.
Reports have emerged of graffiti being sprayed on walls in the town centre, cars being spray painted and vandalised, and Beaconsfield SYCOB football club being broken into and vandalised.
Several sections of the wall at the underpass near the Pyebush roundabout have been graffitied this month, and people have also reported that black marks have been sprayed on their vehicles in Beaconsfield Old Town.
Earlier this month, Beaconsfield SYCOB reported its ground had been broken into overnight on Saturday January 9, with damage done to its site in Windsor Road.
Mark Brennan of the club said: “We had a break in at the SYCOB ground. There was a lot of graffiti, the press box was trashed, the burger van was attacked and the store room was vandalised.”
The club also tweeted: “The football ground was accessed last week, graffiti being sprayed on various walls and hoardings.”
Beaconsfield Old Town Residents’ Association has been gathering information about the incidents, and is encouraging those who have been affected to get in touch with the police.
On Sunday, January 17, the group tweeted: “Did any Old Town residents have spray paint sprayed on their cars last night? Had reports of black spray paint on vehicles.”
Joanne Smalley replied to say: “No, but we had the wing mirror kicked off our car in the Old Town on Friday night! Low level vandalism is worrying.”
BOTRA added: “It’s dreadful that people think this is funny. Do report it to Thames Valley Police to hit their crime reports.”
Beaconsfield SYCOB has been in touch with the police, who are investigating the incidents.
