Vandalism at Turriff Pre School playgroup

Outdoor learning area at Turriff Pre School set alight in vandalism attack

The outdoor education area at Turriff Pre School playgroup was subject to anti-social behaviour and fire-raising last night.

A post on the Pre School Facebook page said

Good morning, we received a call from a concerned friend this morning to say there was a fire started in our outdoor area and that she had called the fire brigade. We were able to go down to check the area and meet the firefighters, who informed us that they had already been down last night to attend another fire.

As you can imagine this is very disappointing for playgroup as it is a great area for the children as well as providing unique outdoor learning opportunities.

I have attached photos of the logs that have been set on fire. We ask that if you hear anything about who is responsible that you contact either, ourselves, the police or the fire brigade. This area is covered by CCTV, which we will look into.

We do not want our children to miss out due to mindless vandalism. Thank you.

If anyone has any information on this, please contact Poice Scotland on 101 or let the playgroup know.
