Community Update: Vandalism and Arson at Sol Joel Park

The recently renovated playground at Sol Joel park has been vandalised and set on fire, with the cost of replacement play equipment estimated at £40k.

If you have any information regarding this crime please call Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 0845 8 505 505.

A report in GetWokingham (here) highlighted Earley as having one of the highest levels of reported crime within Wokingham - higher than both Woodley and Wokingham Town Centre.

This is certainly not a league table we want to be topping. We want you to feel safe, and that’s why our 2011 manifesto (here) states: 

"We want you to feel safe. Earley has one of the highest crime rates in Wokingham, and that’s why - finances permitting - we’d negotiate for an additional Police Community Support Officer to help combat crime."
