Thieves remove copper wiring from floodlights at Shoalhaven sports fields
Shoalhaven City Council has advised of recent vandalism at three of its sports fields, with thieves removing copper wiring from floodlights and illuminators at the Thompson Street Complex, Sussex Inlet Sports Field and Vincentia Sports field.
The vandalism has rendered the floodlights unsafe to use resulting in power outages at the fields.
Urging residents to keep an eye out for vandalism in the community, an unhappy Shoalhaven Mayor Amanda Findley advised "vandalism doesn’t only affect those who use the sports fields, it affects the whole community.The removal of the copper wiring renders these fields unsafe for use after dark and, may result in clubhouses losing perishable items due to power outages.
“I encourage community members to keep an eye out for any further vandalism in the Shoalhaven and if they do see offenders, please call the Police immediately.
“The Shoalhaven is a beautiful place to live and as a community we should strive to continue to keep the region pristine.”
Shoalhaven City Council is currently working to have power restored and the illuminators and floodlights fixed.
