Thieves take picnic table from Devizes woods
2:00pm Saturday 21st September 2013 in News
THIEVES have stolen a picnic table and a kissing gate from Drews Pond Wood in Devizes.
There are three other picnic tables but Stuart Hislop, project co-ordinator of the wood, said: “It makes me sad that people do this type of thing. We are volunteers and we struggle for money.
“A new picnic table would cost about £250 but we are not in a position to replace it. The thefts were obviously planned and they would have needed transport to take the picnic table away as it took four of us blokes to lift it.”
The gate at the main entrance to the wood was also stolen overnight on September 2 and 3. A temporary gate is in place while volunteers wait to see if Wiltshire Council will provide a replacement.
Call Devizes Police on 101.
