Vandals Set Fire to School ‘Outdoor Classroom’

Many villagers may already be aware, that sadly some mindless individuals have intentionally set fire to St. Mark’s School ‘outdoor classroom’ area at SMILE Meadow. The school has informed the Police and the Fire Service and, at present, are thinking of how they can move forward to rebuild this area for the children. As this is a temporary structure, it is unfortunately not insured. Once the school has some ideas, they would like to call on all parents and the village community for any donations of materials and time to help us with its reconstruction.

The school says it will not let the experience affect the children and the enjoyment they have at SMILE Meadow and will be continuing with Forest School days and regular visits.
If anyone has any information which may help identify the culprits please let the school know or phone the police on 101 or contact the village Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator at
