Preston Rock Garden
Yet again, 6 cherry trees have been snapped in half in Preston Park.
A Rowan tree suffered the same fate in the Rockery.
This coincides with a report that a large group of youths were seen on the chalet roof in the Rockery
This was around 18.45 on Saturday, 7th June.
Police informed.
It’s starting to get very depressing

We joined the crowd funding to get the trees planted. Chin up.

Brighton. NOT KEMPTOWN!
I'd just love to catch them. "I only used as much force as was necessary when they attacked me, Officer."
I hope that the trees can be replaced in the winter, perhaps two sizes up from the original bought ones?
Don't lose heart Jevs, or the idiots have won. 💪

I vandalised things when I was young. Can't really explain why, it didn't really feel like me doing it. I guess some sort of anger / cry for help thing. Stuff is much worse for kids now than it was then. Kept inside away from their friends for years, now fear being made to join the army.

I reckon most people who do this sort of stuff aren't going to go on to be career criminals. They can be reached. Best not to turn this sort of thing into another wedge between young and old.

Also not sure if there was an implication it was travellers. Maybe it was. Again, not much to be gained with stirring hatred with a community. Best thing we can do is engage with them

If the tree get replaced, and I hope they can be, is there any legal way of protecting them with barbed wire as a vermin-deterrent?
