Key safe stolen from hub

Cockburn Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THEY are a com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion, but some lo­cals have not been kind to the Hamil­ton Hill Com­mu­nity Group.

Just days be­fore a much-an­tic­i­pated open day to cel­e­brate their new cen­tre The Hub, thieves broke in and stole a 600kg pizza oven that was to be used to pro­vide free pizza to event at­ten­dees.

Weeks later, and still with no word about where the pizza oven is, vol­un­teers were dealt an­other blow when they dis­cov­ered their key safe had been stolen in a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent, forc­ing them to change all the locks.

Hamil­ton Hill Com­mu­nity Group vol­un­teer Chris­tine Duck­ham said it was up­set­ting they con­tin­ued to be tar­geted when they were there to help the com­mu­nity.

“It feels dis­heart­en­ing and it is in­ex­pli­ca­ble. Our aim is to make pos­i­tive and sig­nif­i­cant changes to en­sure Hamil­ton Hill is a great place to live, work and play,” she said.

“We are a var­ied group of lo­cals who share com­mon val­ues, we have a pos­i­tive view and are fo­cused on chang­ing our sub­urb for the bet­ter.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the pizza oven’s where­abouts is asked to call Mur­doch Po­lice on 9313 9000.
