Thieves cost Council thousands for the sake of a few poundsStaff at Denbighshire Countryside Service have expressed their disappointment and frustration that thieves have damaged the car park machines at the top car park at Moel Famau for the second time in 6 months.David Shiel, Countryside Officer said: “The machines are emptied regularly during the week so only hold a few pounds but it costs many thousands to replace them which is a huge amount of money to our small service.“Not only will it cost us to replace them but it also takes time which means that we lose income that is necessary to keep people in jobs, managing the countryside that we all love.”“Countryside Service rely on income from car parks to keep people in jobs and maintain the parks. It is really bad timing with the Christmas period being a busy time for people enjoying the beautiful winter landscape of the Clwydian Range. If you have any information about these thieves who have done so much damage please contact the police”.
