Allotments vandalised in night time attack

Vandals have left a trail of destruction at the Jubilee allotments on Church Road in Frampton Cotterell.
A shed was burnt down, windows on other sheds were broken and doors partly ripped off, chickens were let out and water butts were damaged.
Lisa Urminger, secretary of the Jubilee Allotments Association said: “It’s horrible, it’s really horrible. The worst thing is the plot that had the shed burnt down was owned by lovely people who recently had to give it up.”
“New people have just taken it over, a young couple with children, so it’s really sad. Maybe we’ll have a whip round to buy them a new shed.”  
Mrs Urminger estimates that 15 shed windows were broken. Taps had also been kicked off the water butts, but no crops were damaged, despite some being recently harvested.
