Association president Shanelle Pekin said the incident was "pretty disappointing”.

"It's just stupid vandalism really,” she said.

"As soon he puts his foot through the window, he runs because the alarm goes off.

"We're a not-for-profit, we only exist for the community and for them to try and break the hall...

"The repairs come from our own pocket.”

Paul from Moore Park Beach Glass and Security was out to fix the window straight away this morning.

"We understand it's a group of three on the CCTV, but just one who had the tree branch,” Ms Pekin said.

"It's not safe to be out - you've got young families having dinner down the road while this is happening.”
