Vandals hard at work to destroy the hard work of others

HOONS, louts and vandals were busy the last few nights with evidence of their 'work' at both Bentley Hall and Tintenbar East Ballina Cricket Club.

And these are just the places we know about.

Helen Trustum from the Bentley Hall committee could hardly hide the disappointment in her voice when talking of the mess some unknowns created.

"Louts chopped up the grass all beside the hall with their cars, last night," she said.

"It takes so much to (repair the damage). You've got to level all that out again and let the grass grow and it takes a while."

Ms Trustum said the hall committee volunteers will be the ones to clean down all the mud splattered on the walls.

"We may have to fence the side of the hall area off," she said.

"Which will mean extra cost to the hall committee.

"We have never had to before.

Ms Trustum said there have been hoons before but this is the worst she's ever seen.

The Tintenbar East Ballina Cricket Club didn't get off easy either with large graffiti letters scrawled all over their buildings.

"We trained til 7.30pm here last night and no sign of any graffiti," the club posted on it's Facebook page.

"We wake up this morning to the storage shed looking like this.

"All the hard work that the volunteers have put in to build this shed and then they think it would be a great idea to vandalise it."

Any witnesses to either incidents should call the local police with details.
