"We needed the grounds because they are used to go across the pitch or field so the diggers or dumpers don't do any damage when they go across them.
"They were left out one night but they're quite unobtrusive. You can't see them from the road, but they were all taken one night.
"They're fairly big and heavy to carry - around four foot and weighing 30 kilograms - but they managed it."
"I just feel sorry for the contractors who had other things to use the boards for."
