Fenland archery club devastated by theft of training equipment worth �1,500
A FENLAND archery club has been left devastated by the theft of �1500 worth of equipment from their store in Wimblington.
Thieves stole all the training bows, arrows and sights along with three steel lump hammers and a metal detector from the store used by Parkfield Archers.
The equipment, which was only purchased this year for the club’s beginners, was taken sometime on Thursday night.
Kevin Charter, the club’s secretary, said: “It’s almost like they took a neat set. The people knew exactly what they were after and must have known something about archery to have taken what they did.
“We will have to reduce the number of members until we can replace all the bows. It’s extremely annoying but also dangerous - this is specialist equipment and can be very dangerous.”
