Neighbour's Trampoline Keeps Bashing Against Our Fence Panel

They rent next door and have four kids (we're terraced) and I own our home - they don't. They're quite a rough lot, but it cost me a small fortune to buy a much needed new fence (I had to save) and we got the fence before next door moved in. Trouble is they haven't left any clearance space around the trampoline and when their kids jump on it, our fence panel moves back and forth. We've already had to 'tell them off' for flooding our garden when they irresponsibly emptied their garden swimming pool and also had to tell them not to walk on our flower bed at the front when they step down from their van of an evening. How many more times do we have to reprimand them before they get shirty? I worry about our new fence as it cost so much. Any ideas, please? I'm 78 and just live with my daughter. My daughter says, "Just ignore it. If they damage it, they'll simply have to pay for a new panel". Also, my fence isn't covered in my insurance. Is my daughter right in this?

If you don't want to face them face to face, write a note that says, 'Would it be possible for you to move your trampoline away from my fence please as I feel it may damage it.' Push it through their letterbox.

Surprisingly few if your actual tone is like your written stuff. Why not just say hello and ask them to move across a bit?
Mother and daughter - how about asking them round for a cup of tea and piece of cake to welcome them to the neighbourhood and make friends. Then you’ll be able to ask them anything.
Correct, if you are nice to someone it makes it difficult for them to be nasty to you.
Maybe a strategically placed garden sprinkler would be a subtle hint for them?

I wrote this on behalf of my mum. Problem? She has poor eyesight.
yes
she's right
Doesn’t sound as if they will pay for it. Do you know the landlord or the letting agent, get in touch with them. It might even be worth paying for a solicitor’s letter.
Have you tried speaking to the neighbours on behalf of your mum?
