Kemback Bowling Club has once again been targeted by vandals doing severe damage to the club’s green.

A strip of grass about a metre wide has been covered with what appears to be weedkiller which has affected the grass all the way down one rink of the green.

A club spokesperson said that it was not the first time the club had been targeted.

“The green has been damaged before with marks being made into the playing surface and this time someone has sprayed chemicals on to the green whilst walking down the pathway beside the green.”

The damage is down the far side of the green, going away from the clubhouse where reports suggest a person has walked along the path holding a sprayer while putting weedkiller on the green.

It appears that the damage was done any time from around 10 to 17 days ago and had not been noticed by members of the club or the public, as the season for outdoor bowling has finished.

The club spokesperson echoed the feelings of dismay from the bowling club members: “It seems strange that such a beautiful quiet spot as Kemback would have a problem with vandalism and hopefully other properties in the area are not having the same damage done to them.”

The matter has been reported to Police Scotland who are looking into the issue.

A police spokesman said: “Police in Fife received a report of damage to the green at Kemback Bowling Club, and enquiries are currently ongoing.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
