Hillside Tara will fight on

The officials from the Hillside Tara feel they are fighting a losing battle after vandalism to the Tara offices on Hillside Crescent over the weekend. A double glazed window was smashed and a brick wall around the garden was vandalised. Constant litter is also a problem as local residents allow their children to use the garden as a play area. Iron gates that have recently been erected have been removed and placed inside the building for safety as children on the estate removed them to gain access to the area and left them lying around. Pat Goddard the treasurer stated that the officials were absolutely disgusted at the one or two mindless people on the estate who are causing the problems and she calls for the residents to name names if they see anyone damaging the property. She added, “ The members of the committee have worked hard since the Tara opened three years ago and we will fight on for the sake of the residents. We will not give in to these mindless yobs who are hell bent on closing down the Tara” she went on “But we need the full support from all the residents, we are here to work with them, but they must work with us as well”. The committee hope to form a neighbourhood watch and have called a meeting for 7pm on Friday in the Tara offices when Glen Glade the community PC will be in attendance
