Hagg Lane allotments theft: were you a victim?

Last Monday night, on 17 October, a number of plots on Hagg Lane, including the members’ trading hut, were broken into and a large amount of property taken.

South Yorkshire Police has advised allotment holders who have suffered individual theft/damage to report their story to the police (telephone 101) so they can link all the reports together.

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

As Crosspool is blanketed today in a fresh covering of snow, Jon Gardner’s photo showing abandoned cars on the A57 close to Hagg Lane reminds us of how bad the weather was last month. You may have also seen it published in the Sheffield Telegraph as part of the paper’s look back at 2010.

Meanwhile, as of 2pm, the Travel South Yorkshire website is reporting that there are no problems reported on bus route 51 and it is running as normal.
