I would really appreciate any comments, advice or just a sense of perspective on my current shed problem.
The shed in question is on our allottment which backs onto a tree lined slip road to a large roundabout. The seclusion offered by the trees and shrubs means that anyone can climb the boundary fence unseen to gain access to the allotments. Over the past few years there have been break - ins to the sheds. If we padlock them we end up having to repair or replace the doors as they just break them down.
The current development which is really upsetting, is that there are a regular group of people, probably kids, who have taken over our shed as a place to smoke and hang out. I have to say that so far apart from leaving rubbish there has been no damage. Occasionally they leave the odd 10p. No one ever seems to see them so we have no idea how regularly or at what time they visit. We have painted the fence with anti climb paint but apparantly with the help of an old bike tyre and something to put on the fence, getting over is no problem. My husband thinks that as long as they are not damaging anything we should put up with it but I find it upsetting. It is a violation of my private space and I don't see why we should accept it. Any thoughts? Any thoughts are welcome.
