Graffiti vandals ruin new play area in Tudor Grange Park

Tudor Grange Park play area off Monkspath Hall Road was issued with some new equipment last month including a sand pit, slides, boulders to clamber over, mushroom stepping stones and a children’s seating area, as part of a national initiative called Playbuilder.

But now council staff are to visit the site as part of a clean-up operation to remove graffiti which has been daubed all over it.

Councillor Mrs Diana Holl-Allen, cabinet member for quality of life and neighbourhoods, said: “We will be removing the graffiti from the children’s play area facilities.

“However, the skate park area has been made especially for skaters and graffiti is allowed in this area, unless it is of an offensive nature.”

Five other playground areas across the borough also benefited from the scheme including Dorridge Park, Elmdon Heath Recreation Ground, Kingshurst Park, Marston Green Park and Colebrook Recreation Ground.

Anyone wishing to report incidents of graffiti to Solihull Council should telephone 0121 704 8000 or e-mail environmentalhealth@solihull.gov.uk.
