Rugby Council Facing Repair Bill After Crash At Alwyn Road Recreation Ground

Alwyn Road Crash, Rugby

The council faces a four-figure repair bill after a vehicle crashed through a car park barrier at Alwyn Road Recreation Ground, damaging outdoor gym equipment.

The damage was discovered on Monday (29 February) morning - and the council has now appealed for the public's help to catch the culprit.

The council completed a £100,000 revamp of the recreation ground in 2014, with the outdoor gym equipment proving a popular addition to the park's facilities.

But the outdoor gym's recumbent bike was badly damaged in the crash and, with the car park barrier also in need of replacing, the council fears the final repair bill could top £3,000.

Cllr Lisa Parker, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for sustainable environment and ward councillor for Bilton, urged anyone with information about the incident - which the council believes took place over the weekend - to contact the police.

"Whether accidental or malicious, the person responsible for this damage had a duty to report it," Cllr Parker said.

"We now face a hefty repair bill, money which could be better spent on making further improvements to our borough's parks and green spaces.

"The number of residents who took part in our consultation to help design the park's revamp showed how much the community values Alwyn Road Recreation Ground, and I'd encourage anyone with information about the incident to report it to the police."

Information can be reported to Warwickshire Police by calling 101, quoting incident number 130 of 1 March.
