General Issues / Vandalism at the North Mymms Community Centre
« Last post by hilarycarlen on Today at 04:30:47 pm »
Vandalism at the youth and community centre

-  About 8-12 Litres of brown white and green paint thrown around at the back of the garages,
-  one of the garden benches smeared all over with white paint,
-  paint thrown all over the little shelter behind the garages, across the ground, on the wall, on the floor
-  attempt made (happily unsuccessful) to set light to the second little shelter at the other end of the garden,
-  little fences pulled up
-  garden tools taken - a nice wooden handled fork that I'm very fond of still missing
-  a quantity of slug bait taken up to the top and ?? attempt made to burn it on the fire circle (toxic, bad plan)

I have spent the morning putting everything right - restoring fences, digging out and recovering he areas where there were pools of paint, repainting the little house and the wall behind it, repainting the bench.  If they come back to show their mates what a fun mess they made, their mates will think they've made it up!

Horrible oiks! 
If your child came home spattered in green / white / brown paint, ask them where my fork is!
Better still contact me and I'll come and talk to them and offer them a job to do to make up for the trouble they've caused me (I could do with some young lads or lasses to bag up horse poo from the stable for me....)
General Issues / Vandalism at BP United Reformed Church

Posted on behalf of the elders of the BP URC:

"Sad to report that the Brookmans Park United Reformed Church has suffered from vandalism. The safety railings at the steps leading to the car park have been pulled clean out of their fixings - which would have required considerable effort on the part of the perpetrators. Wine bottles have also been smashed in the centre of the car park. A group of young teenagers were seen in the vicinity and are obvious suspects as they have been seen rocking the railings in the past. If you know the perpetrators, please contact the Church Elders. If you are passing and see any malicious activity, please call the police."

From Herts police...

Appeal following serious collision in Hatfield

Dear Watch Member,

Officers investigating a collision in Hatfield are appealing for information and witnesses.

Just after 3am today (Monday, April 24) a silver Vauxhall Corsa was in collision with a tree in Great North Road (A100) between Welham Green and Brookmans Park.

The fire service attended to cut free a woman, aged in her 30s, who was trapped inside the vehicle. She has been taken to St Mary’s Hospital in London where she remains in a critical condition.

Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Roads Policing Unit are working to establish the exact circumstances surrounding the collision.

Sergeant Richie Barker from the BCH Roads Policing Unit said: “I am appealing for anyone who saw the vehicle shortly prior to the collision to contact police.

“We have established that the Vauxhall Corsa, which has a registration plate number starting with YS59, was in the Welwyn area at around 12.55am today and I am also keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the vehicle around this time.”

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact Hertfordshire Constabulary via the non-emergency number 101, quoting ISR 52 of 24/4/17.

Alternatively, contact the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their anonymous online form at
