The Town of Blackfalds has been receiving reports of vandalism at the Abbey Centre.

They have issued a statement asking for resident's help in stopping this problem.

Here is the statement from the Town.

The Town of Blackfalds has been experiencing a significant increase in vandalism at the Abbey Centre over the past number of months. It is challenging for staff to monitor activities when the public congregates for reasons unrelated to the facility's programming.

Vandalism not only negatively impacts this beautiful facility that we are all so proud of but greatly impacts the operations of the facility and the costs for its operation. In other words, senseless acts of vandalism impact everyone in the community.

Please assist us in reducing vandalism to our Town owned facilities and parks by talking to your child about the importance of respecting and following rules of operation in our facilities.

We also ask that any guest or member who sees suspicious individuals or activity to please report it to Guest Services. We thank you for your time and attention to this matter and look forward to bringing this issue to a resolution.
