Police are appealing for information after cash was stolen from a bowls club near Great Yarmouth over the weekend.

Thieves broke into the social club building of Martham Bowls Club in Playing Field Lane and stole a small quantity of cash.

The break-in is believed to have taken place between 3.15pm on Friday, March 9 and 10am on Saturday, March 10.

Colin Starkings, chairman of the bowls club, said around £200 in cash was stolen and damage to the front entrance could cost around £300 to £400 to fix.

Anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area between the times stated, or anyone with information, is asked to contact PC Gary May at Caister Police Station on 101.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555111.

The club opens for the season in May, competing in numerous outdoor leagues and knockout cups, with most fixtures played during the evenings. Social and casual bowling is also hosted by the club during the daytime and at weekends.

Contact the club on 01493 740890 for more information.
