Villain stamps 37 holes into the lovingly manicured playing surface at famous Lyme Regis club
Police are hunting a vandal who damaged the hallowed greens at Lyme Regis Bowling Club over the weekend.
Late Saturday night or in the early hours of Sunday an intruder deliberately stamped their heel into the lovingly manicured grass, causing at least 37 holes of about 1.5 inches deep.
A spokesman for the club told The Herald: “Fortunately it can be repaired but this type of action shows a total and utter disrespect.”
Community beat officer PC Kirsti Ball is appealing for help to catch the culprit.
If anyone has any information about the offender they are asked to contact her at Lyme Regis Police Station or on Lymeregissnt@dorset.pnn.police.uk
* The Charles Mercer Green at Monmouth Beach is named after the Lyme club’s most famous member – the late Charlie Mercer - who was captain of the England Bowling team.
