Last Monday evening, 9th August, some lads were seen on the flat roofed section of the Scout & Guide Centre at Banks Park. They removed some tiles from the main pitched roof.

Also, overnight a large hole appeared in the roof of a wooden shed sited to the rear of the Centre. The shed is owned by Puddleducks Pre-School who meet in the Centre and they use it to store some of their play equipment.

The hole in the roof was "person-sized" and it is reasonable to assume that somebody jumped onto the locked shed from the flat roof of the Centre and went straight through the roof. It appeared that the "intruder" had rearranged chairs inside the shed in order to get out.

Puddleducks have had to purchase a tarpaulin to make the shed watertight and protect their equipment.

On the same evening a window in the Village Hall was broken.

The incidents have been reported to the police and they will be patrolling the location regularly.

If you are in Banks Park or live nearby or if you are just passing and you see anybody acting suspiciously, please report it to the police by ringing 101 or emailing WaddesdonNHPT@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk.

Also, if anybody came home on last Monday night with an unexplained injury, might it have been sustained as the result of jumping on and falling through a shed roof?

Parents of teenagers, please warn your offspring of the dangers.
