Breakins - Saturday Evening 20th July 2013

We are sad to report that plotholders on the Hagg Lane site have again suffered further breakins with allotment doors and sheds broken into. Nothing so far has been reported to us as stolen, it seems to be an act of mindless vandalism. Plot numbers 28,29,30,32,33,34,40,41,43,44,45,46 & 167,170&171 appear to be have been targeted in some capacity but there may be more.

We must stand together and report any damage to the police 101 incident number and obtain a crime reference number.
