Vandals have destroyed trees planted in a Sandy recreation ground in a bid to increase the town’s biodiversity.

The three Himalayan Birch trees, funded by a grant from Central Bedfordshire Council’s Tree Planting Scheme, were thrown into the garden of a nearby home on the weekend of December 10 and 11.

Sandy Town Council is now appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Ian Reed, deputy clerk said; “This latest incident is just one of a number of instances of vandalism at Bedford Road Recreation Park over the past year. We are saddened that this type of behaviour persists and are asking if anyone knows anything about these incidents that they please report it to the town council offices.”

The council will be applying to the fund to buy replacements and says it’s determined to continue with tree planting and further enhancement of the town’s gardens and open spaces.
