Thieves have struck at a Preston public sports club stealing equipment used to keep grounds.
Members of this BAC/EE Social and Sports Club at Southmeadow Lane are very appealing for information after the theft of a “Snapper” ride lawn mower and a border strimmer on the weekend.
The thefts, which are thought to total more than1,000, will make it difficult for volunteers to prepare the reasons for cricket and soccer matches.
A spokesman for the club said: “At some point this weekend somebody has broken into our sport groundsmans’ area and also stolen a ride on lawn mower applied around the floor.
“This is a very important piece of equipment and has obviously been stolen to order, as planning and trailers could have been used to slip this.
“We need it to prep the reasons for your clubs football and cricket.
Anyone with information is requested to contact Bernie on 01772 498 795 or the Police on 101.
