our lottys were vandalised . 7 gardens entered and sheds broke in.all hens and livestock terrorised and let free. what sort of objects are we breeding. most of us are retirees.we just want to be left alone. is it worth carring on
Always worth carrying-but so soul destroying-and a sign of the times
good night wrinkly1 of coarse its worth carring on . if you don't they have won

don't let the B-----ds get you down
That is not nice maybe need to get a spy camera set up to record vandal, some are horrible lot like that don't care maybe just want to destroy things for others
But worth carrying on with gardening as it is enjoyable thing to do with rewards in seeing things grow
what can we say wrinkly1, just that we are so sorry yes it is worth carryin on dont let these lowlifes destroy what you love doing cos to them its just a big laugh,i think its how they are brought up and the people they mix with,gone are the days when parents gave them a clip round the ear most of them have no control over them whatso ever they are the scum of the earth,but dont you dare give up make your plot as safe as you can and enjoy what you are doing,keep us posted.
I get a few drunks and druggies passing my gate to the estate down the road and put plastic cameras up high where they were visible but out of reach. £1 each at a boot sale.
Don't let the police (overburdened) forget this and get the community bobbies to agree a schedule of action with you all. Get their advice and let them know you appreciate it and would like regular meetings. They know who the regular troublemakers are in the area.
Also, if it is a council area, could it be gated at night? Again, publicity is key, plus a charm offensive to coucil officials that won't let them forget the problem.
Very sadily your experience is not isolated. There have been several threads on this forum, where people have been the victims of vandalism. Here are two others..http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/shed-theft/2965.htmlhttp://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/problem-solving/potting-shed-burglary/2311.html
Brumbull -that is not the same Dove
Because they are a muppet
The person who was trying to impersonate Dove has also posted on the thread about potatoes. His comment there says "...you might ask Jon Cob about that...".
It would seem that there are vandals to be found even on this forum.
jon cob, change the record.
It would seem it's past your bedtime, off you go. Overtired.
thanks for all your support. you/r right. we can/t let these people win. onwards and upwards.
I think the discussion was about allotment vandalism. We will not exchange insults with anyone because it is playing into the hands of mischievous persons.
i have not had my allotment for very long and have been plagued with golf balls coming over,as in in the middle of putting up a shed we half finished it yesterday cos of the weather thought id secured it went over this morning in the pouring rain to find the roof halfway down the field my windows had blown on another allot so up to my knees in mud tryying to make it watertight but not much luck oh dear the trials of an allotmenteer.
i find it best not have shed or keep my tools on my allotment less to encourage two legged garden pest.
