Police are currently investigating a fire which was started to the rear of the Tilly Molloy Community Building in Armoy.
A spokesperson said ‘The remains of that fire were once again cleared up by Robert Johnston ( Josie), our caretaker. We understand the fire was lit by a group of young people.
The dangers are obvious. The potential for disaster is real. This is not good fun. The young people involved know it is wrong. We ask them to stop now.
People live in the flats in Tilly’s and to light, a fire is incredibly dangerous. So is the fume damage to the playgroup and the whole building for that matter.
We have reported this crime to the police and we will be installing CCTV in this area. We ask that any information about last night’s fire is passed on to the police. Crime reference number -399 – 28/4/2019.
We understand that many people will be angry with this attack on the community centre.
We ask you instead to guide these young people through these difficult teenage years, and help them understand the importance of our Community Centre for the entire community.’
