Plea after school’s bench is stolen
APRIMARY school has launched a social media appeal to return a bench that was stolen on New Year’s Eve.
Banks Methodist Primary School in Chapel Lane, Banks, said that the bench was stolen from the school field while it was closed for the winter holidays.
A Facebook post read: “On New Year’s Eve one of the benches was stolen from the school field.
“We have a report that a couple with a small dog were seen carrying it towards Chapel Close.
“If anyone spots our bench in a neighbouring garden please can you let us know where it is.
“The children use these in PE and at playtimes and we would love to have it returned to its rightful place.
“Many thanks for your help.”
The post has been copied onto dozens of local social media sites.
Anyone who knows anything that could help return the bench to its rightful owner is urged to get in touch with the school office or contact reporter Jenny Kirkham at jenny. kirkham@ trinitymirror.com
