Vandals smash allotment greenhouse

By ashley ball, Wombwell/Dearne Reporter Saturday 3rd May 2014

VANDALS have smashed a greenhouse at John Street allotments.

Allotment holder Shaun Halpin, 47, from Main Street, Wombwell, said a large stone and bricks were thrown at his greenhouse, breaking several glass panels.


Shaun estimates it will take him a week to repair the damage but fears it will happen again.


"It's just an ongoing thing and it some times makes me want to pack up and go somewhere else," he said.

"They also throw bricks at my chickens and another person on the allotment says he saw somebody chasing them around.
"It will definitely happen again unless something is done about it."
