Vandalism at Sixmile Leisure Centre

24 April 2015


Alan Napier, Duty manager at Six Mile Leisure Centre, Deputy Mayor, Councillor John Blair and Councillor John Blair inspect the vandalised window in the Gym at Sixmile Leisure Centre.

Today the Deputy Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor John Blair, joined staff at Sixmile Leisure Centre to assess damage caused by vandals during the night. Leisure centre staff this morning discovered that a large 7ft window in the gym area of the centre had been shattered. 

Speaking about the incident, Councillor Blair said;

“Since February a total of ten windows have been broken at Sixmile Leisure Centre. This is an absolute disgrace and a total waste or ratepayer’s money.  Last year £3000 was spent on repairing damage caused by vandalism.  This window alone will cost over £2000 to replace.  This mindless antisocial behaviour must come to an end.  I would ask anyone who has any information to contact the local PSNI.”

PSNI officers have visited the centre and have viewed the centre’s CCTV footage.   Anyone with information should Tel: 028 9065 0222.
