Vandalism at Page Park

There has been vandalism at Page Park in Staple Hill, with damage caused to the bandstand as well as several plants and shrubs in the surrounding flower beds.

It happened between 2.30pm yesterday and 8.30am today.

The Friends of Page Park said: “This is particularly upsetting for us as the plants were paid for as a result of the efforts of our volunteers who work so hard to make our park so beautiful for all to enjoy.”
