Police are investigating the burglary between 1am and 1.10am, which involved the burglars forcing the front door open and ransacking the club.

A police spokeswoman said officers are still awaiting a list of any stolen items.

Chairman of the club Martin Worman said: “It’s very frustrating that these people target clubs like us which are run by volunteers for the benefit of the local community.

“It’s annoying that the money that we have raised has to be spent on security and fixing things rather than for our members and the charities we support.”
