recreation ground on several summer
evenings. One got out of hand and
needed Fire Service attendance. An-

from outside a local shop) burnt and
strewn across the recreation ground.
  We have worked hard on this issue
by increasing evening patrols whenever
possible. We’ve seized alcohol, includ-
ing vodka, beer and Pimms from several
underage teenagers. Some said their
parents gave them the alcohol. If this
