We have taken down very upsetting for all concerned a few spoil it for everyone we were aware that kids were going to celebrate they do every year we don’t mind it’s their space too and we are going to build a special area there but we do expect it to be treated with respect and are fed up of clearing up smashed bottles cans detritus etc there’s always a few who jeopardise the safety of others and their pets and kids

Just because it's his work doesn't mean he done it.

I am the mother of the lad that got ‘named and shamed’ wrongfully. I don’t walk around with rose tinted glasses on. All teenagers can be absolute gets but knew no way my son would be so stupid. I have just returned from the woodlands (to my sons pure embarrassment). unfortunately the police had gone, but spoke to the other adults present. With the words we knew it wasn’t him and he came straight up to speak to the police and ourselves in a very mature way. You have a good one there. They are all having a fabulous time but a minority of older boys started it. Then escalated with them throwing stones at the girls and dented a police car. So please if you have anymore to say. I will happily give you my mobile number to speak about this issue further.

Rightly so it has been taken down’ No proof at all…not a great move on the person who posted it with a young persons name on it! Talk about Innocent until proven guilty…wasn’t this paper taken from a fire pit where it was ‘allowed to be’! Maybe an apology could be good for this young lad as this post was shared and sadly we live in a very judgemental community! Poor kid did nothing wrong and was wrongly named and shamed X

The majority of these kids are just winding down after a very hectic 2 months and trying to celebrate with friends. There's always some idiots that have to spoil it and they were not year 11 school leavers. The kids even took black bags up to clear after themselves.

I walked up there past them about 6.45 with my dog there were about 60 to 70 kids up there I didn’t see anyone causing trouble just one on a motorbike showing off

This is awkward, the lad may have dropped his bag and this paper fell out. There is no proof it was him, it can be very misleading. This needs to be taken down. It’s an awful situation I agree but allow the police to do their job

So annoying and upsetting that the majority of kids up there tonight are lovely year 11's enjoying the celebration of leaving school and 2 months of gruelling GCSE'S, spoiled by a very small minority of kids who are not year 11's lighting fires.

it’s nothing to do with him, we are up here for our leavers and the fire was done by other people

Do any of you volunteer at the Woodlands

Pity they wouldn't name and shame these bastard that are vandalising car and terrorising people on these electric scooter..

I’m Coel Hodgkins I didn’t do this please message me privately

Or message Leanna Hodgkins

Extremely misleading post and comments. Yes it was year 11 leavers day, and yes lots go up there as per tradition. Many took black bags and recycling bags to clear up afterwards. You wouldn't meet a better group than this year 11 group. As always, a minority spoil everything, in this case lots of kids involved wasn't even year 11 or even kids who bothered to take exams. Social media got so many positives, but on occasions like tonight have so much to answer for when innocent individuals or groups get blamed with out evidence. Shame on those who chose to post it in first place and to those who commented without facts. Sad times. It is gutting for those who volunteer up the woodlands and do so well, and of course concerning for those who got cattle etc - but please don't point finger at innocent children. Hope the culprits are caught 🤞

Been up the woodlands for my morning walk and considering there must have been about 70 kids there last night the mess that's been left is minimal. Good on those kids (and parents) It is unfortunate that some others don't have as much respect.

This is awful. Hope the cattle are all ok. Wasn’t the “end of exams kids” though.

Kids have made a disgusting mess of the place for years now, leaving litter/drugs everywhere, purposely breaking glass and lighting fires. I hoped for more but sadly I'm not surprised by this. Some kids have no respect for anything or anyone and, as far as I'm concerned, the blame lies with their parents. I hope the cows are removed before the weekend.

I'd 100% move my cattle if I were the farmer as well... disgusting behavior.

You all work so hard x it makes me mad to see this as I am a volunteer at a charity x

What's wrong with people you all work hard up there .x

Parents need to be made responsible for situation like this

We all know the score Don't blame the innocent

Bloody kids... that's our cattle in there... .. 😡

Absolutely dreadful 😟

Coat found up there this morning if any one is missing one message me

Can't they just AV a bit of fun y do they need to damage everything

😭😭

Committed Volunteers Andrew Cindy Josef Paul and Mike under the watchful eye of their trainer Tom Eyles of Gower training and wildlife finishing off their successful Brushcutting course funded by GAVO, we got our ditch and banking cut - what a bonus, they all did really well and enjoyed the two day city and guild course and are roaring to go… so we will be clearing paths and around the nut and fruit trees but leaving all the lovely flora to go to seed before they give that the chop! ...
