Carnoustie community spirit shown in the wake of attacks on two local groups has already been tarnished by the repeat actions of vandals.
The Golf Memories Group and Carnoustie Panmure Youth FC were each hit in quick succession by recent incidents.
A banner promoting the golf group was torn down. And the young footballers were stunned to find the thieves who broke into their Pitskelly Park clubrooms took items including kit intended for African children.
A swift response brought support for both organisations. But while the football club is well on its way to hitting a fundraising target to replace its stolen items, Golf Memories Group members were dismayed to find a replacement banner vandalised again just days after being put up.
Chairwoman Lorraine Young said: “Local business, Primesigns, generously replaced the original banner. In a matter of days it was vandalised again. We have now removed it.”
