POLICE are investigating acts of “senseless vandalism” at Crossford Village Hall over the past month.

It is understood that youths have climbed onto the roof and broken tiles which they then used to smash greenhouse windows behind the hall.

Doug Hay, chair of Crossford Community Council, said: “It is disappointing that youngsters can’t find something better to do with their time.

“It’s senseless vandalism. I don’t know why they would want to cause damage.

“We just need to let the police deal with this now.”

A member of the village hall committee reported the incidents on Facebook.

They said: “Disappointingly, the village hall suffered vandalism on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

“Roof slates were broken/removed, greenhouse glass smashed and packets of seeds destroyed. This has been reported to the police. If you live around or nearby the hall and see any suspicious behaviour can you report it please.”

The first incidents occurred on June 25 and 27 and residents also reported that youngsters were at the hall again on Monday and Tuesday, July 1 and 2.

Police Scotland said the incidents were being investigated.

A spokesperson said: “Police in Dunfermline are investigating recent incidents where the roof space of the Crossford Village Hall was accessed and damage was caused to the roof.

“Inquiries to identify those responsible are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to come forward.”
