Yesterday one of the allotmenteers had her phone stolen from her car. She had seen a car, with two young men in it, drive up and thought they didn’t look like allotments holders, but didn’t give it much thought.
When she went back to her car later, her phone was gone and other stuff was strewn about the floor.
This is a very unsettling event. Please be on the alert and keep your car locked at all times and don’t keep valuables in the car . . . .
If you feel more comfortable, you can close the bottom gate or lock the top gate while working on the allotment.
