Vandals target surf club
VANDALS resurfaced in South Grafton over the weekend, this time senselessly damaging and stealing property owned by the Red Rock/Corindi Surf Club.
The vandals broke into a storage shed on the banks of the Clarence River, which is used by the club to store training equipment for its Grafton members.
Club vice president Rebecca Ulrick said she was perplexed as to why someone would seek to damage property of an organisation that works to safeguard the community.
“They threw a number of boards and skis into the river, stole weight-lifting equipment and made a general mess,” she said.
“What kicks anyone would get out of doing that leaves me bewildered.”
The break-in was discovered on Sunday morning when SES crews checking the river for debris before a rowing regatta noticed surf equipment floating in the river.
It's believed the thieves broke into the shed sometime late on Saturday night or early Sunday morning.
