Youth Gatherings – Trinity Methodist Church Garden – Shenstone

There have been regular complaints to the Police concerning the way youths in the village, and their associates from outside the area, have been gathering in the sensory garden at Trinity Methodist Garden, totally ignoring the current Tier 4 Covid restrictions and using the garden to drink alcohol and smoke Cannabis. Previously damage has been caused to the plants in the garden and graffiti has been sprayed on the bench and wall. Litter is regularly strewn across the garden.

This total disregard for a community facility is totally unacceptable and carries with it the danger of spreading Covid 19 to households in the village. Parents are urged to ensure their teenagers are not out socialising in the village. We have to work together to prevent the spread of the virus. Please let me know of any youths gathering there or in other locations in the village. This is a difficult period for everyone, but we have to work together as a community in order to emerge from this pandemic as soon as possible. Thank you.
