VANDALS broke a window at a newly-built village hall last week, causing £900 worth of damage.
The incident at Shilbottle Community Hall happened on Friday night and police had reports that a large group of youths were in the area at the time.
Alnwick Police Neighbourhood Inspector Sue Peart said: “Bearing in mind it’s there for them and the residents of Shilbottle, to treat the hall with such little respect is appalling.
“The village need to show they are not going to tolerate it and and therefore if they have seen anything they should get in touch with us.”
Anybody with any information should contact police on 03456 043043 extension 69191 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
