A picnic table has been stolen from a park in Nailsea, prompting appeals for information.
The brightly coloured bench was taken from Trendlewood Park, close to St Francis Primary School and a children’s play area.
The Friends of Trendlewood Park – a group of volunteers who look after the area – are devastated by the theft and are asking for help to trace it.
Volunteers believe it was taken sometime in February.
A spokesman said: “People in Nailsea will be outraged. It’s very heavily used by families and people watching their children in the play area.
“The table had been secured by metal straps, but someone has sawn through them.”
A North Somerset Council spokesman said: “The bench was bolted to the ground.
“It’s very bright as it’s painted in rainbow colours.
“If anyone spots the bench, please report it to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
