Vandalism at new Luxford play area

Luxford play area following cleaning of grafitti

The recently opened play area at Luxford Field has already suffered from vandalism.

Grounds staff from Uckfield Town Council were called in on Monday to attempt to remove grafitti from the area, the spray paint is difficult to remove.

The new play area was only opened on Saturday 19 September, and the vandalism is expected to have taken place within 24 hours of opening.

A spokesperson for Uckfield Town Council said: “It is extremely disappointing to have to deal with this sort of vandalism and particularly galling when it has happened at the newly refurbished and opened Luxford Play Area. It is also frustrating having to divert our grounds staff from their usual duties in order to deal with it.”
