Playgroup’s dismay after vandal strike
Water pump is set on fire

She said: “It was a real labour of love. We put a lot of work into it and I even made a wooden decking to go around the pump. Fortunately the decking has only been scorched but it could’ve been a lot worse.
“It’s disappointing. It was for the kids to play with and they’ve had a lot of fun with it.
“We’ve received a few generous grants towards the garden and it’s just a shame to see this type of thing happen.
“We’d be grateful if all passers-by could watch out for anyone behaving inappropriately around the community centre and please, report it to the police.”
Last year a newly-built playhouse at the centre had its windows smashed just a day after being installed.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information is asked to contact the police on 101.
