A village youth group is appealing for help after thieves broke into its storage container and stole BMX bikes which had been donated to the organisation.

The Congresbury Youth Partnership provides opportunities and activities to the village’s young people. It was recently given a donation of BMX bikes and skateboards, but group leaders discovered last week the bikes had been stolen from its base off Kent Road.

Youth manager Sarah Storey said: “It is so disheartening when something like this happens, but more so when the theft is from a non-profit making charity in Congresbury, whose sole aim is to support children and young people and give them positive activities and experiences.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
