Trees planted just months ago along the edge of the Jubilee Green in Savages Wood Road have been destroyed in a mindless attack by vandals.
A local resident contacted The Journal with news that two of the trees had been damaged in an attack thought to have occurred last Thursday night.
A visit by The Journal’s reporter confirmed that two of the ten foot high trees have been snapped off at a point about three feet above ground level.
Construction of the Jubilee Green Playground is yet to begin, despite plans to have it ready for the Community Festival in mid-June. The project was recently hit by a 45% rise in costs after tenders were found to be significantly higher than had been anticipated.
News of the vandalism comes just weeks after similar damage was inflicted on a number of comparatively smaller trees in the town’s Community Orchard (planted in 2007), situated in the Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve, behind the Secondary School.
