Volunteers at the Te Puna Quarry Park are disgusted after finding their equipment has been stolen.
The discovery was made on Monday morning, when some of the volunteers turned up to start maintenance work on the park.
A big list of things has been taken including a Suzuki mini truck, a ride on mower, a chipper, a concrete mixer, a trailer, three chainsaws, three weed eaters and a bunch of different tools.
Jo Dawkins, who has been volunteering since the park opened, says this is a major setback.
“The volunteers are devastated that this has happened. It makes everything harder to make all the tracks and paths usable.
“We used to use the truck to get around but now everyone is having to use their vehicles.”
The police have already been up to the park and have taken finger prints but Jo says that the police reckon that gloves were used.
“It was forced entry as the door on the side of the shed has been jammed about.”
Te Puna Quarry Park President Ian Cross says it would be great if members of the public could keep an eye out for any of these stolen items.
Te Puna Quarry Park have a givealittle page set up, usually for those to donate after visiting the park if they don’t have any cash on them.
Now the volunteers of the park are asking people to donate so they can buy new equipment so the park can stay maintained.
