Police probe after scout hall vandalised 

 Published on: 7th March 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Thames Valley Police are investigating a series of incidents of vandalism at the Chalfont St Giles Scout Hall over the past month.

Three large windows have been smashed in a series of separate incidents and there are reports of up to three attempted break-ins.

The most recent attack was on Saturday, March 2, when vandals smashed through double glazing after scout group members had spotted three individuals on the scout’s property.

The police are investigating a case of criminal damage and they are studying evidence from CCTV and other video to identify who took part.

The 1st St Giles Scout Group is co-operating fully with the police investigation and say they will “pursue compensation to cover the repair costs where appropriate.”

The scout group executive has called for anyone in the community who has seen or heard any suspicious activity near the hall to get in touch with the Thames Valley police by phoning 101.

Temporary repairs have been carried out until the windows can be replaced and the numerous Scouting and other community activities which take place in the hall will not be affected.

Thames Valley Police were asked to comment but at the time of going to print they had not responded.
