Had some devastating news yesterday. We got a call from the Town Council to tell us that on Saturday night our Shed was ramsacked and tipped over. When we arrived last night in the pitch black the roof was leaning on the ground and the base was high in the air. It looks like it has been rolled too. It's about 1/4 of the way down the plot now as opposed to right at the front side.

We could tell it was a mess last night when we went up but it was so dark that we could not see a thing. I went up this morning on the way to work and this is the site of devastation....

It makes you feel like strinking a match and burning the lot and walking away for good. Our mini greenhouses are smashed to bits and our books and notepads are soaked due to the rain over the weekend. We are still unsure what is missing but we have noted a few things already. My allotment neighbour told me he discovered the sight and called the town council straight away, but obviously being a weekend there was no response. I had only started digging it over for winter on Friday, how frustrating. Since yesterday the shed has collapsed and crumbled.

Absolutely gutted. Not sure what to do or where to start...

But we will fight on and I will dig for victory!


  1. :( thats truly terrible, bastards!!!!! ((((((((hugehugs))))))))))) ...take a huge breath, cup of tea and sit and plan what to do next,can any of your allotment neighbours help you to get started on the clear up? xxxx

  2. Martin & Amy, so sorry to hear your news. What mindless pathetic violence. So very sorry.

  3. Awful news. But with the motivation and determination you have shown to get your plot to where you wanted in such a short time, I'm sure you can turn it around.

  4. Hi guys,

    Thanks for reading as always and more importantly thankyou for your concern. It's a very real event but it seems so unreal. Grabbing my bin bags and torch and heading down to the plot tonight to see what is damaged etc.

    Unfortunately, we are now working Mon-Fri and don't get home til after dark, so sorting this mess out is a very unneeded problem and it has come at the worst of times.

    Thankyou once again.

    Will update soon...

  5. Hopefully karma will sort them out - may they be inflicted with terrible boils etc etc. Sorry to hear that but I'm sure you'll rise from the ashes once again.

  6. Oh that is SUCH a shame! What scum, tp do such a thing. Hope yo can salvage as much as posible :-(

  7. That is absolutely appalling - have you any idea who would pick on you like that. Have you told the police?

    Wanton vandalism is just incomprehensible!

  8. Hi, I am absolutely gobsmacked at such wanton vandalism, it is actually criminal .I would be gutted and probably unable to think straight for a while. The dark evenings make it harder to clean up before the weather damages anything even more.i hope you can salvage and reuse some things at least

  9. That's terrible! I just don't see how people can do something like that and live with themselves. No conscience, that's for sure. Good luck getting it back together and many blessing to you all.

  10. Such a shame!...sorry to hear this did you talk to the police?

  11. Hi guys, just a quick update on this. The shed and contents have either been removed to our shed at home or left at the allotment under a sheet of tarpaulin. The police were informed and they came down for a look but that was about it. We're ready to get back on the straight and narrow in 2013 though. Happy gardening!!!

    1. Didn't they even give you a crime number?

      Here's hoping for a better 2013

  12. Oh my! That makes me ill looking at that mess and destruction even though it has been months since it happened. I know you have cleaned it up now.
