Thieves broke into the Acorns Children's Centre on April 16th last and stole a quantity of expensive cabling as well as causing damage. I am afraid it means that the opening of the Centre which was due in mid May has had to be delayed, probably until August. Staff and parents were all looking forward to benefitting from the improved Centre and must feel very sad if not angry that someone should vandalise the building in this way. One could in fact say that the real losers are the young children who would be using the building and taking advantage of all the extra facilities being offered. Sergeant Andy Murphy has asked anyone who has information to contact Taunton Police on 0845 4567000 or Crimestoppers on 0800-555111.
