Vandals slammed after causing damage to community garden in Ballymena

Damage at the Community Garden.

VANDALS have struck at a community garden in Ballymena.

Denver McMeekin, Chairperson, Harryville Men’s Shed, said: “The community garden in Harryville isn’t even handed over yet … and the polytunnel had been damaged in 4 places.

“I would ask all parents who have young people who gather at the area to please have a word and try and deter them from causing damage to their own community.

“For any perpetrators who did this I’ll say to you, if you want to see what’s in it I’ll let you in but please don’t start wrecking what the community want to see as a great asset where we can all take advantage of a community garden,” he said in a message on social media.

Independent councillor Rodney Quigley said: “I totally condemn the attack on the polytunel and would encourage anyone with information to contact the PSNI.”
