Bowlers un­der siege by van­dals

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Teen yobs are mak­ing life a mis­ery for mem­bers of Half­way Bowl­ing Club.

The club have suf­fered a spate of van­dal­ism over the past few weeks.

A win­dow was smashed re­cently while mem­bers were in­side the club.

“Thank­fully no one was hurt,” said a club spokesman who did not want named.

“We’ve checked CCTV but the cam­eras didn’t cover the area in­volved.

“We’re now go­ing to spend money we can hardly af­ford to get more cam­eras in­stalled.

“We know that it is boys and girls aged around 15 that are do­ing it but we just can’t prove it,” said the spokesman.

Three weeks ago the club suf­fered a break- in to the green­keeper’s con­tainer.

The thieves stole a hedge trim­mer and then trailed oil on the play­ing sur­face.

“We think they then tried to set the oil on fire,” added the spokesman.

The club have re­ported the in­ci­dents to po­lice.

Con­sta­ble Greig Rober­ton said: “We are aware of the is­sues and our in­ves­ti­ga­tions into these mat­ters is con­tin­u­ing.

“We will also be in­creas­ing pa­trols in the area around the bowl­ing club,” he added.
