The Trinity Playgroup space was vandalised soon after the not-for-profit group started.

ALMOST as soon as it was opened, a community playgroup has had its space trashed and craft supplies stolen.

The Trinity Playgroup held its open day on Thursday, March 31 at Room 3 in Alkimos, and president Sarah Williams said by the following Tuesday someone had broken in.

“We had our lockable cupboard broken and 99 per cent of our art and craft supplies stolen or used to ‘redecorate’ our room,” she said.

Mrs Williams said the community had raised about $300 to establish the playgroup, and most of the supplies had been vandalised or stolen.

“We are a not-for-profit playgroup; we don’t have the funds to replace the $200 worth of supplies stolen,” she said.

Police are investigating that break-in and another attempted break-in between April 11 and 14, during which a door handle was damaged but no entry gained.

The community playgroup is appealing for donations to restock.
