Van­dals tar­get trees

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

VAN­DALS have de­stroyed play­ing field trees at Hopewell Pri­mary School. At least six ma­ture oaks and other shrubs had been hacked down at the St Stephen’s Walk, South Ash­ford, school . Po­lice have been called in to in­ves­ti­gate and head teacher Amanda Helpin has writ­ten to res­i­dents seek­ing in­for­ma­tion about pos­si­ble cul­prits. She said: “The trees were all well es­tab­lished and home to a large num­ber of an­i­mals. They also pro­vided shade in the sum­mer and bound­ary pro­tec­tion for neigh­bours from un­due noise.”
