We have heard that the recently installed gate entry system to the Montagu Sqaure Garden has be vandalised. This is the latest in number of petty crimes in the area. There have been a number of incidents of cars being broken into in and around the Square. If you have any information about this incident or others, please contact the Garden Square Clerk. See letter below.
Dear Local Resident,
You will be aware of the recently installed entry system to the Garden. Since its installation there has been severe vandalism and three times the cylinder on the West Gate has been smashed from the outside. Today there has been an escalation as the entry system on the George Street entrance has been smashed. This is of course the gate used mainly by families.This means the only entrance to the Garden is by the East gate and we don't know when the vandals will strike again.The Garden Committee deeply regret what has happened and realise it will lead to disappointment particularly to families. The Police have been informed and the Committee will be exploring options. If anyone has information do email me with details. Substantial force has been used which must have created considerable noise.The Committee will keep you informed.
With concern,Luz Perez,Clerk to the Garden Trust
