Newly ren­o­vated shed van­dalised

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE Mun­dub­bera Girl Guides Shed has been van­dalised just weeks af­ter a $30,000 ren­o­va­tion.

Mun­dub­bera po­lice were called to the scene and in­spected the dam­age to the build­ing.

“The side of the build­ing was rammed by a steel net­ball pole which of course gave 10cm holes on the in­side,” Sergeant Daniel Clarke said.

“It’s ter­ri­ble to see reck­less dam­age to such a loved piece of in­fra­struc­ture for the com­mu­nity.”

Mun­dub­bera Girl Guides Shed vice pres­i­dent Kristy Townsend said it was very dis­ap­point­ing.

She said the girls along with their lead­ers were left shocked af­ter turn­ing up for their weekly meet­ing to see the shed had been dam­aged.

“The girls were in­cred­i­bly shocked and dis­ap­pointed when they came in the other day just to see all of their hard work has re­sulted in hav­ing this,” Mrs Townsend said.

“We then had to ex­plain to them why peo­ple would do this.”

The shed will have to be re-val­ued and a cost­ing will be given in the com­ing weeks.

“We’ll have to get a builder to come and have a look and see if it is struc­turally down or to see if it needs to get patched up,” Mrs Townsend said.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should phone Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 or the Mun­dub­bera Po­lice on 4165 4211.
