Members of Erina Men’s Shed have been left devastated after thieves ransacked their headquarters over the weekend.
Reps say they arrived at the facility on Carlton Road in Holgate yesterday morning to find all its welding gear had been stolen.
Among the items nicked were consumables and face masks, much of it donated by local churchgoers and the Shed’s guys themselves.
“Very sad that someone would steal from a community shed,” a member wrote breaking the news on social media.
“It will take quite a long time for us to replace this valuable equipment.”
Police are looking into the theft and if you have any info, get in touch with Gosford officers on (02) 4323 5599.
