Thanks for your concern, guys! Sadly the council don't want to know - one of the reasons why it got broken into was that the council have stopped cutting the verges that made the site visible to the road. Last year the allotmenteers planted firethorn trees along the edge, but it doesn't seem to have deterred the theives.
I was one of the lucky ones - they looked at my stuff and carried on, but other people were less lucky.
I hadn't thought about 'other uses'. Sadly there's no electricity on the site so no alarms to be had. I'm just hoping it was a one-off; that they realised there was nothing worth having and that word will get round the criminal fraternity that we're not worth bothering with.
I love the idea of burying a barrel in the manure heap - genius. At least you'll be able to sniff out any theives you might get now, Shaun!
Good God this really is pathetic. A small group of people that have no passion for anything in life destroying the little that other people have...
