“WE will not tolerate this behaviour,” that’s the message from Llanfair Caereinion Town Council following a spate of vandalism in the town.

The Town Council says it is disappointed by a series of incidents in Llanfair Caereinion in recent months including damage to the public toilets at Bridge Street, the footbridge near the railway and at the football ground

It is calling on the community to be vigilant and said: “Together we can catch the culprits.”

It follows an appeal for information by Llanfair United FC after its ground, Mount Field, was targeted by vandals between Friday, June 7, and Monday, June 10.

The club reported on social media that some ‘tip-up’ seats in a spectator stand were found damaged during a clean-up event ahead of the town’s carnival. The vandalism included black graffiti on the walls and small fires.

The club said in a post: “Obviously very frustrating for the club. If you see anything then please let us know. Help us keep an eye out.”

Ivor Owen, Llanfair United FC committee member, who has a stand named in his honour, said: “I am disappointed anyone would vandalise the club’s facilities.

“Other clubs in the area have suffered similar incidents in the past and now our own ground has been vandalised.”

He added: “It’s such a shame.”

Llanfair Caereinion Town Council has criticised the vandals and said: “The effort that the community puts in into supporting these services and clubs is fantastic and we don’t want a few idiots to spoil that. We will not tolerate this behaviour.

“As a community can I ask that you be vigilant and together we can catch the culprits.”

Cllr Gareth Jones, Llanfair Caereinion County Councillor, said on Facebook that he was “gutted” by the incident at Mount Field.

“Maybe time for CCTV around Llanfair,” he added.

The stand was built with a Football Association of Wales Trust Welsh Ground Improvements grant aid in 2017.

Dyfed-Powys Police is asking people with information about the incidents in Llanfair Caereinion to contact them on 101.
