Two planters which were donated to a Bury St Edmunds charity to replace ones that were snatched by thieves have also been stolen.

The planters were given by Nowton Court Village to Gatehouse, in Dettingen Way, which supports the disadvantaged and people with dementia, for its clients’ garden just over two weeks ago.

They were to replace planters which were stolen from the charity. However, the new additions were also stolen on Sunday between 5.15pm and 6pm.

It is the third theft from the charity in the last eight weeks as a hose pipe was taken following the first set of planters.

Elaine Channen, dementia hub facilitator at Gatehouse, said: “I work for a charity and I’m meant to be forgiving and right now I’m finding that quite difficult.”

She said they had CCTV of a white van being driven by a man approaching the site.

Call Suffolk Police on 101 quoting 107 of June 26.
