Good result for cricket club as vandal coughs up for repairs

It seems a vandal in Waringstown has felt a pang of conscience and decided to cough up for damage caused to the local cricket club’s pavilion.

Last week the Lurgan Mail reported how sometime over the weekend of February 17 - 19 the Roy Harrison Pavilion at Waringstown Cricket Club’s home ground, The Lawn, was vandalised. (Read story here)

The hands were pulled off the pavilion clock and two letters, an I and an S, were ripped off the sign on the front of the building.

Last week’s story carried comments from club vice-chairman Alan Harrison stating that it could cost £200 to repair the damaged clock.

And it seems someone took note of Mr Harrison’s comments, as local police have since confirmed that the missing letters were handed in to a local church along with £200 to fix the damage.

A post on the PSNI Craigavon Facebook page said: “A very expensive lesson to learn, but learnt nonetheless!

“The club consider the matter now resolved, so we’re delighted to be able to get them an outcome they’re happy with.”
