Tuesday, 2 May 2023
A farm park had thousands of pounds worth of equipment stolen in a burglary overnight.
Quex Adventure Farm Park and Activity Centre, in Birchington, has had more than £6,000 worth of damage and goods stolen after a break-in.
A spokesman for the tourist attraction in Thanet said: “We have had cash, IT equipment, camera equipment and tools taken.
“There is lots of damage to doors, windows, tills, security systems and office furniture.
“In the cost of living crisis, we have held our prices low to make fun and educational family outdoor fun available to as many people as possible but this break-in puts a strain on a business just trying to do its bit for the community of Thanet.
“Winter and Spring are always quieter for us and with a break in two years in a row, it is both heartbreaking and demoralising for the small and committed team.
