Vandalism in Scarcroft: it is with sadness we report a spate of vandalism in Scarcroft. This consists of egg throwing at properties, mainly Thorner Lane and also the parish council notice board outside the New Inn. This is pretty mindless, messy and a waste of eggs. It has been reported to the police and they are carrying out evening monitoring of the situation. Residents seeing anything suspicious should report it to the Wetherby Police. 01132855360 or 101.
