"Chloe is devastated at losing it and as a single mother, I can't afford to replace it.
"She was so happy when she got it and has really enjoyed using it."
Mrs Herring said she had originally chained the trampoline to a post but removed the chain after deciding it was too big and heavy for anyone to move it.
She said: "I am amazed that people have gone to such effort to steal it. It has really been an eye opener as to the lengths people will go to these days."
The incident has been reported to the police and anyone who has any information should contact Pc Shaun Taylor on 01473 613500.
