Theft

Not a nice word to use, but there have been some reports in the last few days from plot holders that some items have been removed from their plots by persons unknown and without permission. They have not been returned. At least one wheel barrow has vanished and even some paving slabs!

It is quiet on the allotments at the moment, so please put as much as you can away safely and keep an eye out! Please report any suspicious happenings to HAGA. Use the contact us page on our web site or contact your sector rep.

Seed potatoes are now in. See the trading hut page for details.

CATS

There has been a comment added to our Guest Book regarding cats on the allotment. Please read the sections "Criminal Damage 1971" & "The Common Law Duty of Care" at this web link.

Dogs on the allotments

Dogs are welcome on the allotments as long as they are with their owners and are under control. In all public areas they should be on a lead.

Take a look at this link to Controlling your dog in public

Recently we have had a few incidents where a dog has wandered off around the allotments and has caused some damage to plots. Take a look at the pictures below.
