Damaged football pitches repaired

DAMAGE caused by travellers to the football pitches at Jubilee Park in Henley has been repaired at no cost.

Volunteers from AFC Henley, which has several junior pitches at the site, fixed the broken goalposts using spare parts they kept in the clubhouse off Reading Road.

The club’s groundsmen, Henley Contracting, from Maidenhead, then put down new grass seed.

About 10 travellers arrived on the field off the A4155 but were moved on by police three days later. Officers then escorted the caravans to the M4 at Reading.

The travellers left behind piles of rubbish including glass bottles and human and dog excrement.
