Swastikas (drawn the wrong way around) and a star of David daubed on a wall at Sible Hedingham Recreation Ground in Essex have been removed by the Parish Council.
A parish council spokesman said: “Sible Hedingham Parish Council were horrified and upset with the graffiti that was painted on the brick shelter in the Recreation Ground. The Recreation Ground is a community facility that is well used by families who enjoy the play equipment and the open space. The graffiti was gone within 24 hours of the Parish Council finding out about it. The graffiti had to be painted over as no amount of scrubbing, graffiti remover or paint thinner worked. The Parish Council denounce the behaviour of those involved in the disgusting graffiti.”
The Halstead Gazettereported that CCTV is now being examined in the hope that the perpetrator can be identified.
We commend the Parish Council for its exemplary response.
