Between 16:00-17:00 we had some low life smash our mini bus passengers window and stole our football and boxing equipment, which was in a black sports bag!
If any one saw anything or has any CCTV of this, then please get in contact on 0330 133 0174 to try and find these criminals, this has now impacted on our members as the van will be out of action until this is fixed!
We have also contacted the police.
Our van was parked in our car parking space behind Tesco express in ocean village.
A HUGE thank you to @tesco @oceanvillagesouthampton for your help!!
Please share to get the word around!!
