At some time between 6 pm last evening and 8.30 am this morning St Thomas’ Church Groombridge was broken in to. A plain leaded light window was smashed with a small stainless steel border spade (not belonging to the church), which provided access. They forced open the kitchen door, and there was a failed attempt to enter the Sacristy. One of the sheds outside was also broken into.
As far as we can tell at this stage nothing has been stolen.
When I arrived both doors had been unlocked from the inside and were wide open.
If you saw or heard anything suspicious, please contact Rev Sharon on 01892 864265. Thank you.
