Will the irresponsible, selfish, disrespectful individuals who mindlessly burnt and vandalised the play equipment at FederalPark over the weekend please stand up and take a look at yourselves.
Federal Park is much used, loved and cared for by the whole of the Federal community and beyond. We have just celebrated the re-opening of our much-missed Federal shop, and now one week before the start of the school holidays we have lost the use of our playground. Kids of all ages gather to socialise and play here, making it an essential hub in a small village. As a mother of three small children, I am wondering where I am supposed to take them and keep them entertained, close to home, during the school holidays.
Surely those responsible used to be children once, too, and have slid down slides and climbed climbing frames. Next time you feel the need to conduct mindless acts of vandalism, stay at home instead.
