TRESPASSING youths who have made a den in Woodbury Cricket Club's playing fields are keeping residents awake by chopping down trees and making noise late at night.
Councillor Philip Glanvill, chairman of the village's parish council, and a number of residents who live in Park Way which is located near to the fields, have voiced their concern over the issue.
One pensioner who lives in Park Way, who refused to be named in fear of being targeted by the youths, said: "Last weekend they were creating noise until the early hours of the morning.
"It's just not on - particularly when you have people who have to get up for work the next morning."

Cllr Glanvill, speaking at a parish council meeting held earlier this month, explained: "They have been in the field chopping down trees and causing a lot of disturbances to people who live nearby.
"They are trespassing on private property. We have had a number of complaints of excessive noise late at night."

Alan Loman, 61, of Park Way, said the youngsters had made a whole in the hedges on the perimeter of the site to gain access.
PC Simon Halloran, who was aware of the problem, said because Woodbury Parish Council were tenants of the land, it was up to them whether they wanted any action taking against the youths.
He added that if the number of complaints continued to grow, the police would go and deal with the perpetrators.
