Margaret Blackburn of the bowls club said members have already cleared up the glass and replaced the window pane.

She added: "We did not have any CCTV in place at the time and there have been a series of acts of vandalism at the adjacent football playing pavilion.

"Until recently we have had casual people getting in to the club and moving equipment. This is the first time we have had any damage and the windows broken.

"We hope it is one spurt of malicious damage and they won't come back. The repeated acts of vandalism on the playing field suggests this is the same group of people."

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or has information concerning those responsible.

Anyone with information should contact police constable Faye Stocker at Operation Solve on 101 quoting crime reference 36/74682/20.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The bowls club has 35 members for outdoor and indoor carpet bowls. The bowls season has just finished due to Covid and the time of year.
