Penarth Town Mayor, Cllr. Ian Buckley has spoken out on persistent issues of theft, damage and anti-social behaviour in Penarth.

Ian said: “I am very saddened at the instances of vandalism of planters and floral displays that continue in our town.

We continue to see theft and damage of floral displays and decorations. This causes hurt and cost to small independent businesses who have been hit hard by the pandemic for over a year and a half.

Many of us put in real effort to make Penarth a nicer environment for everyone, and the whole community are affected in this way.

I urge people to consider their fellow Penarthians and to remain vigilant of these offences taking place.”
