“What is the matter with people? It was doing nobody any harm and might have done the perpetrators some good. I am now just mad.
“All that hard work and now we have to lay out more money to rectify someone’s mindless bit of fun.”
The Association has been told it will cost �150 to repair the broken board. They plan to use tougher glass this time and re-site it to make it a less easy target.
