PC Sean Horne said “Deliberately damaging a community facility such as this is simply unacceptable.
“The cost of repair is expected to be a low three-figure sum of money which is both costly and inconvenient for the members of the club.
“I would like to reassure the community that we will use all available means open to us to identify those responsible and ensure that they have to face the consequences of their actions.
“If anyone recalls seeing anyone acting suspiciously in the Durn Road area of Portsoy in the early hours of Saturday morning I would ask that they contact us. “
“Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 using incident reference number 2035 of 17 February, or call the dependent charity Crimestoppers to remain anonymous.”
