A mean-spirited thief has been at work in Sandford, stealing the plants in the tubs at Greenhill Lane and Helens Road, leaving the tubs in a sorry state, and destroying the enjoyment of everyone who passes by. Sandford Gardening Club members fundraise for the plants, plant up the tubs, and then tend them, providing a year-round colourful floral display for everyone to enjoy, and enhancing the appearance of the village. Stealing plants from the tubs deprives all of us. Plants are readily available at a reasonable price from garden centres, and easy to grow from seed, so there is no reason for anyone to steal from a community display.
If you see anyone behaving suspiciously near one of the tubs, please report this to the police on 101.
