Anger after bench stolen

1514 CLUB President Dougie Rae has slammed the thieves who stole a park bench he bought to commemorate his special year in office.

Work is ongoing by the Club to improve and enhance the area around the Curling Pond.

And Mr Rae was hoping to mark his year at the helm by donating the £120 bench which would have been situated in that area.

But he said: “It was outside my house in my yard on Friday night and someone’s obviously thought it would be a better idea for them to steal it. It was a hugely personal thing and I’m really disappointed.”
