A LARGE bouncy castle has been stolen from outside a pub near Wrexham.

The £1,500 castle and its inflating generator were stolen from outside the Duke of Wellington beer garden/play area in Acrefair between 1am and 7am yesterday.

Shaun Rogers, landlord of the Llangollen Road pub, said: “It’s not ours, it’s on hire from BounceAbout in Ruabon, but it was stolen out of our garden which is quite a distance from the pub.

“We hired it for the summer for the school holidays because we’ve been having really good weather and it’s done really well.

“The kids loved it and so did parents because they knew it was going to be here all summer.

“Now that’s been spoiled because I am loathe to get another one after this.”

BounceAbout owner Richard Baker said the red, blue and yellow Lets Party castle which was purchased new earlier this year had been at the pub for six weeks.

“It’s deflated at night. They’ve wrecked the fence to get in, rolled it up and then dragged it out.”

Last year Mr Baker’s business was also targeted. A previous storage facility was broken into and 20 inflatable castles were stolen as well as 50 fans used to blow them up.

Despite CCTV evidence, none of the valuable equipment was recovered.

Anyone who witnessed the inflatable being stolen or who may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the area is asked to contact Mr Baker directly on 07970 621177 or North Wales Police Investigation Support Team on 101 quoting reference RC14130363.
