Equipment's been taken from Able Hands Together in Laverstock, which helps adults with learning disabilities to get outdoors.

The theft happened at their base at the Riverbourne Community Farm on Cow Lane at some point between 3.00pm on Friday October 12th and 3.00pm on Saturday October 13th.

It's believed that the offender climbed over the gate into their field.

Two car batteries, two fence energisers, a wheelbarrow and a retractable hosepipe were stolen.

The farm say that equipment is important 'to keep the animals safe'.



Wiltshire Police say enquiries are still ongoing into what happened.

They've asked anyone with information to call 101, quoting crime reference 54180097865.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
