Vandals targeted at Epworth site

VANDALS who have targeted Carrside Sport facilities in Epworth have been warned that police are continually monitoring the area.

Incidents reported over recent months include criminal damage and arson and there have also been complaints about youth antisocial behaviour and cars congregating in the parking area.

Over 130 children - including Epworth Colts FC - regularly use the facility and volunteers and local businesses recently rallied round to refurbish and redecorate the site.

A reinforced roof and alarm system has also been fitted with shutters also installed on the windows.

Neighbourhood officers continue to patrol Carrside on a regular basis and anyone who witnesses antisocial behaviour should call the 101 non-emergency number.
