Co-op ram-raid – attack on our community

Author:  AC


Local residents in Clanfield awoke to loud bangs early this morning when the Co-op Store in White Dirt Lane was ram-raided.   Evidently, thieves used a JCB or tractor to pull the cash machine, and part of the front wall, out of the store.  Before fleeing the scene, the raiders set light to the vehicle, destroying some evidence and causing even more damage.  As a result, the car park looks a mess and the Co-op, including the post office, and Glasstec are all closed whilst repairs to the wall are arranged and the police conclude their investigations.


This is a distressing scene, for an attack on our local businesses and services is an attack on all of us.  The actions of these criminals, who have no concern for the mayhem they have left behind, have hurt the heart of our village.  We live in a growing and thriving community, and an integral part of our village are our local businesses.  Please support them by buying locally, for Clanfield to remain a vibrant community, we need them as much as they need us.
