That's awful - why would anyone do that? I thought Corsham was a nice place. I saw recently on this site that someone's car on Katherine Park was broken into and some electrical goods stolen. Such a shame. I hope they're returned in one piece - we can hope!
I know - I couldn't believe it! We only moved to Corsham in December, and it has always struck me as a very safe place, so I was very shocked and upset by what happened - especially in daylight and literally from right outside our front door. How awful about the car break in on Katherine Park too - it's just not what you expect. I'm not hopeful of the tree being returned. The police did suggest it may just be kids, but even so - it's quite a sad state of affairs.
Funnily enough, we had our child garden swing stolen on the friday 3rd August. Its an enclosed garden so they must have jumped over the wall. Its not small either! This was in Edridge place. Also on the same night in Hulbert close someone had forced their way into the back garden of a house and moved all the garden furniture around.
