As I arrived at work today I noticed that the beer garden outside the ACT Rugby Union Club on Blackall Street in Barton looked a bit bare. Last night thieves stole two of the RUC’s solid wood picnic tables kindly leaving an empty space where they once belonged.
The tables stolen are made from heavy wood, so it was obviously a planned theft by a number of individuals and a truck.
It seems sad that people are drawn to steal basic facilities at a Club that provides a great place to relax and unwind during a busy working week.
If anyone has any information regarding the disappearance of the tables, I’m sure the RUC would greatly appreciate it.
