Woody Bear and Ronnie the Raccoon stolen from Pleasurewood Hills

Woody Bear, Roonie the Raccoon and Clarence the Cat were specially made for the parks opening in 1983.

Managers at a well known theme park in Suffolk are appealing for the safe return of two iconic soft toys stolen from the parks gift shop.

Staff at Pleasurewood Hills in Lowestoft were shocked to find the character pieces, Woody Bear and Roonie the Raccoon had been stolen yesterday (Wednesday 28 June) afternoon.

The four feet high characters which used to be on display in the Fairy Tale Fantasy ride on Main Street were made specially for the opening of the park in 1983.

As Pleasurewood Hills gets ready to celebrate its 35th birthday next year managers are appealing for their safe return.

They are of huge sentimental value to us and to the history of the park.

Instead of pursuing the matter legally further however, we would just ask for the safe return of the two characters back to the park and no further action will be taken.

We would appreciate any information of the whereabouts of our beloved mascots.

– Kate Wood, Marketing Manager

Suffolk Police are investigating the incident.
