The Council’s groundsman has just reported to me that he found some needles by the compound in the cemetery yesterday, which he has removed and disposed of safely. However, I thought parents ought to be warned, since the cemetery is open 24 hours a day, and the Council cannot patrol all the time to keep miscreants out.

If you come across any more, please let me know as a matter of urgency.

The police have been informed.
