Park’s trees destroyed by ruthless vandals
VANDALS have caused ‘hundreds of pounds’ of damage to trees in a popular park.
At least six young trees were snapped or ripped from the ground at Jasmine Park in Broken Cross around 11pm on Saturday, February 6.
The damage was spotted on Sunday morning by dog walker Andy Beaden who plans to complain to the police.
He said: “I spoke to someone who house overlooks the park and he believes the trees are worth hundreds of pounds.
“This is mindless vandalism. It is a beautiful park that everyone enjoys: dog walkers, children, footballers. It’s a real asset in our community, but some idiots have just come along and wrecked it. There is no need for it.”
Jasmine Park - which includes a play area, pavilion and two all weather pitches, is run by Jasmine Park Community Interest Company, which only collected the keys last month after a three year dispute between housing developer Taylor Wimpey and Cheshire East Council.
Jasmine Park Community Interest Company were unable to provide a comment. facing challenges, but say there is no risk of closure.
A spokesperson said: “The hospital is not going to close, there is no truth at all in any rumours that it will. We have had some financial challenges but every trust in the country has.”
