Reports of anti-social behaviour in and around Cefn Mawr has increased in recent weeks, according to police.

One incident includes damage to the fencing at a Multi-Use Gaming Area on Plas Kynaston Lane – along with bottles being smashed and verbal abuse being given to passers-by.

Works have been taking place at the area, such as re-surfacing the flooring of the MUGA.

However this damage was caused before the works were even completed.

In a statement posted on the North Wales Community Alert System, Lara Shiers, PCSO Wrexham Rural, said: “Recently, North Wales Police have received an increase in reports of anti-social behaviour in, and around Cefn Mawr.

“Persistent ASB is having a detrimental effect on the community and it will not be tolerated.

“We are dealing with a number of youth related incidents and action is being taken against those identified as being involved.

“The Cefn Community Council have spent a considerable amount of money on re-surfacing the flooring of the MUGA on Plas Kynaston Lane.

“Unfortunately, before the works were even complete, NWP received reports of damage to the fencing, bottles being smashed and verbal abuse being given to passers-by.

“The work is now complete and the MUGA is open again for use. This is a fantastic facility to have in the community and we ask for users to look after it.

“The facility is also covered by CCTV which is being monitored.”
