Sir – As I have the Gazette sent to me, I got to read the front page story about The Leys (January 9).

I felt the damage that was done on the Leys by mindless thugs driving vehicles on the grass was despicable.

I do hope that whoever did the damage (probably a few), are caught and punished.

As you said in the story, The Leys is for use by Witney people and was laid out as a memorial to Witney folk lost in the war. I do hope that the damage can be repaired.
