Councillors concerned police are not being told about crimes in Latchingdon
Villagers are being urged to call police on suspicious activity as vandals continue to cause havoc and destruction.
Latchingdon parish councillors are campaigning to raise awareness of the importance of alerting police after residents have seemed reluctant to dial 999 in an emergency.
In a bid to crack down on a spate of vandalism, councillors Lynn Robinson and Gill Winsor will be leafleting every house in the village asking residents to keep on the lookout.
This comes after the village hall in Burnham Road was damaged between December 5 and 11.
One thousand pounds worth of damage was caused when vandals ripped off roof tiles and discarded them.
