A spate of anti-social behaviour, including egg-throwing, fires, and racist graffiti has prompted a public meeting in Flackwell Heath. 

Bad behaviour has been blighting the village for more than eight months, with incidents including racist graffiti, damage to play equipment in parks and flowers and bollards being damaged as well as fights in the street and throwing eggs at cars.

Chepping Wycombe Parish Council hired private security to monitor outdoor spaces in the village, while police stepped up patrols on the area, but the ongoing problems have concerned many residents. 

Now, a public meeting is set to be held in the village to discuss the problems and how they can be tackled. 

The parish council said the meeting was organised for Friday, June 24, after requests from a number of fed-up residents.

The meeting will be chaired by Cllr David Johncock and PC Jed Russell who will be attending to answer questions. 

The meeting, at Christ Church in Chapel Road, has limited seating, so if you are interested in attending, reserve a place by emailing david.johncock@buckinghamshire.gov.uk. 

Some of the incidents that have happened have shocked the normally peaceful village. 

A teenage girl who had only just passed her driving test was left terrified after she had eggs thrown at her car on the night of April 22.

An investigation was also launched in early April following a suspected arson attack after firefighters put out a blaze at the play area on Straight Bit.

There were also a string of incidents in the Straight Bit recreation ground last year, where racist graffiti was found on a piece of fitness equipment close to the bowls club, while flowers and bollards at a bus stop in the village were also mindlessly destroyed.

The playground was also previously vandalised multiple times with the inside area of the climbing wall damaged by fire and new surfacing near the roundabout dug out.

And Halloween last year saw police called out twice in one night as "70 to 80 teenagers" gathered in the village and fireworks were thrown at passing vehicles.
