A boiler was stolen from Vogrie Brown House last week, just days before Brownies returned to the B-listed building for this year’s activities.
Committee chairman Judith Strong said: “It’s awful, dreadful, just so cruel. It’s the children that they are actually attacking with this theft. Hopefully the insurance covers it, but we will fundraise if we have to.”
A temporary boiler is being used while the girls’ group awaits its insurance claim.
