The Council has received reports that metal detectorists have been digging across the Green, including the cricket outfield and square and around the pavilion. The turf has been badly replaced and now presents a trip hazard, so parishioners are urged to take care when walking.
They are claiming that they have the permission of the Council, however this is not the case. As their actions constitute criminal damage, this has been reported to the Police and the Clerk has a crime number. If anyone has any further evidence of the perpetrators, particularly video, please pass this information to the Clerk –
