Schools Burgled! Up-setting for the children.

With another burglary taking place this time at Oakmeadow School, and a burglar on the loose, it’s our local Wednesfield schools that are currently suffering from this vile breaking and entry.

I understand that both schools have lost valuable computers, used for the children’s education.

It’s perhaps a good time to review your own security arrangements.

Both St Albans School and now Oakmeadow school have been turned over recently. This is not only upsetting for the children, and the staff. It genuinely puts doubts of safety into young minds.

  • My appeal tonight is two fold. Please keep an eye on public buildings report strange lights or sounds directly to the Police.
  • Keep a watchful eye on your neighbour’s property. Please do not be afraid to ring 999 if you are suspicious of events.

We all have a duty to do what we can to ensure a safe and happy community. Plus if you know or have suspicions about who may have done these acts…..again I implore you to west-midlands-policecall the Police.
