BURGLARY AT DEREHAM STAION

ANOTHER BURGLARY AT DEREHAM STATION

MNR sadly reports another burglary, a shattered window frame and badly damaged internal doors. Yet all that seems to have been taken are model railway vehicles from the Station´s shop. This theft took place in the early hours of Friday 19th December.

Chairman Barry Woodgett said, “The Mid Norfolk Railway is a Registered Charity; it is not made of money contrary to the opinion obviously held by the thieving fraternity. The extensive damage repair costs insurance excess will have to come out of earnings or Membership fees and can only serve to delay MNR developing its full potential in attracting Tourists to support Mid Norfolk economies. On top of that MNR will have to invest in further security measures whilst trying to avoid ruining the 1960’s period style funded by the EU’s Objective 5 monies supplied via Breckland Council during the early 2000’s.” Several internal doors in our offices have been smashed beyond repair and will have to be completely replaced as will the window in the public area. It is an exact repeat of the last burglary about 18 months ago. I hope the Police will apprehend the person who has carried out this awful crime. I can only describe the burglar as low life. The damage to the station will cost more to repair than the stolen items”.
