On Thursday 3 November the allotments suffered several burglaries, including the Society store, leading to damaged shed doors and loss of tools/equipment. Police are aware, however all users of the allotments are reminded that it's inadvisable to leave valuable items in sheds and, wherever possible, to leave doors unlocked. It's much less expensive to replace the odd watering can than to mend a crow-barred door/broken hinges.
It is everyone's responsibilty to close the access gates, which should be kept shut at all times.
Please take the trouble to close them every time you leave. Although this may be inconvenent for drivers, it is also time-consuming and inconvenient for visiting thieves.
Several long-standing allotment tenants are retiring and hanging up their wellingtons this autumn, meaning that some excellent whole and half plots are becoming available. If you live in, or near, Duxford please contact the Parish Clerk for details.
Please follow us, like us, post up your allotment news, tips, photos and share. Facebook will get the news around and help promote the allotments too.
