At this time of year Gardeners thoughts turn to the new growing season, unfortunately so do the burglars.  This week we see the first Allotment sheds being targeted this year.  Please make sure your sheds are well secured with good strong hasp and staples bolted to your sheds.  Use bolts or clutch screws to secure your door hinges.  Mark all your tools and equipment with your postcode and house number, it won’t prevent them being taken, but it does make them easier to trace and return if recovered.  It also makes them more difficult for the thieves to move on.

Between 4.30pm on Friday 20 January and 4.30pm on Tuesday 24 January in Main Road, Westwood, a vehicle was stolen from outside a house.  This has since been recovered.
