Further break-ins at Hagg Lane allotments

Around 20 allotment plots at Hagg Lane were broken into on Thursday 15 December.

Padlocks were cut and smashed from both gates and sheds in order to steal property, according to The Hagg Lane and District Gardeners’ Allotments Society. The society’s website says:

We have again been advised to let as many people as possible know who have suffered individual theft/damage to contact the Police (telephone 101) so they can quickly link all the reports together.

No one else can report on a plot holder’s behalf and it is very important that everyone affected contacts them and gains a crime reference number to help build the full picture of the above incidents.

The incident last week follows a break in at the same allotments back in October.

Thieves steal wood from scout bonfire

A local scout and cub group was victim to wood thieves last weekend.

Timber pallets were delivered to Stephen Hill Scout Group last Friday afternoon in preparation for their fundraising bonfire on Sunday night in Calver Field, off Hagg Lane.

But between Friday and Sunday the wood went missing, forcing organisers to go ahead with fireworks but no bonfire.

The annual event raises valuable funds for the group.
