Isn't it heartbreaking the way some people behave in destroying other people's property? I will never understand the mentality behind this. We live in a village so up till recently we have never had a problem, but last year, we had all our solar lights stolen from the front garden, about £25s worth,I wouldn't mind if they had taken them to use in their garden, but these were just found smashed up further down the road. Was gutted because so senseless. Sorry to hear about your vandals allotment73, hope all gets sorted soon.

Society has lost it's manners, no respect, consideration and responsibility are qualities unknown by some...punishments don't fit the crime. Too much PC-ness instead of a clip round the ear....sorry for going on, not a good day for me either!

Hope this doesn't happen again allotment and that you have a good growing season! :-))

Pg, that is so sad but true.Maybe if more kids got into gardening, they would learn to appreciate what they could learn from it, rather than the small minority that seem intent on destroying someone else's hard work. Sorry, will get off of my soapbox now lol :-)

It probably will happen again potty always does when the schools are on holiday,Ah well can't wait til next week.

Trouble is Allotment, they get holidays again at Easter...Summer....Oooh, I'd have to find a way of "putting the wind up them" without being there to be accused, that way the reaction is a consequence of their action.
