Grindleford allotment ASB- Sept 17

Officers from the Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team are targeting anti-social behaviour in Grindleford following concerns from allotment owners.

It follows two recent incidents at the allotment site, which is in the centre of the village, beside the main road, where fruit has been picked and thrown about, and fencing knocked down.

PCSO Anthony Boswell has met with the Grindleford Allotment Association, regular patrols will be taking place and signs put up at the allotments urging people to report any anti-social behaviour to the police.

PCSO Boswell said: “Allotment owners shouldn’t have to put up with this behaviour, and gardens they have worked hard to create being damaged. We will be carrying out regular patrols and working with the allotment association to target their concerns.

“If you notice any anti-social behaviour please report it to police as soon as possible using the non-emergency number, this is really helpful to us as it will help us identify those causing the issue.”

To report anti-social behaviour call Derbyshire police on 101, except in an emergency when the number is always 999.
