Damage to the Green: The idiots are back ( did they go away?) we have had more damage to the top green at Levetts Lane, Amicus Horizon do not do a lot for Levetts Lane but do keep the Green nice, the Police have been told and Amicus Horizon are to send round a letter but residents will say they do not wish to get involved, that to me is sad. The crime number is 182 24 Nov 2015. This is not the first time we have had damage to the green.
