A community project which operates a garden and cafe for volunteers is facing a clean up bill after their building was vandalised.


Graffiti has been dubbed on the walls of the cafe in Ashton Park.

‘PR2’, ‘Savic’ and various tags are in black and white across the wall of the football pavilion and cafe.

Rob Wilson, from Brick North West, who work with military veterans said: “Do the people of Preston, Larches and Savick know where their children are at night?

“This will cost hundreds of pounds to clean up and people wonder why we can’t have anything nice.

“They’ve completely defaced what is an important part of the military veterans and community project in Ashton Park.”

The graffiti was scrawled on the walls during the evening of Tuesday (15 August) which was also the 72nd anniversary of the end of fighting in the Far East and the official end of the Second World War.

Anyone with information is asked to call Preston Police on 101 and quote log number LC-20170816-0284.
