Vandals target allotments
ALLOTMENT holders in Pill were left ‘extremely upset’ after vandals caused damage at the site.
Overnight on Thursday, it is thought the culprits climbed over the gates to Cross Lanes Allotments before forcing open the doors of many sheds at the site.
The village’s allotment committee chairman Arthur Taylor said: “It seems to us this was just a ludicrous example of wanton vandalism.
“Nothing of real value appears to have been taken but a lot of work will be required to repair the damage.
“A lot of our allotment holders are pensioners and the last thing they need at this time of year is to get chilled through trying to repair their property.

“Its also pretty upsetting to think that people are depraved enough to have this sort of thing in mind at what is supposed to be the season of good will to all mankind.
“I hope that nobody local is involved because there is a lot of bad feeling about this in the village.”
