We’ve heard a lot of complaints about vandals and thieves at the allotments. Now, we’re victims.
About a week ago, Carl painstakingly carved a number 7 into a log, and put it by the entrance to our plot. The craftsmanship was beautiful. This number 7 was a work of art. It was almost certainly the best executed number 7 on the Hagg House site.
Some time between the afternoon of Friday 1st April and the afternoon of Sunday 3rd April, in a cowardly act with no thought for the emotional harm that it might cause, our number 7 was taken.
It may have been mindless vandalism, our number taken only to be thrown into a ditch or hedge and left to rot.
Or it may have been commercially motivated, perhaps even stolen to order. If you live at a number 7 in the area, you can expect a visit and some pretty tough questions very soon.
In the meantime, if a bloke down the pub tries to sell you a well-crafted wood-carved number 7 in Monotype Corsiva, then please get in touch.
