Allotment meeting

ALLOTMENT holders in Pocklington are being reminded to attend an emergency meeting next week.

The planned gathering is to discuss security comes after the recent spate of break-ins at allotment sheds across the country, including Pocklington, Market Weighton and Driffield.

In May, more than 20 sheds on The Mile were targeted by thieves in one evening, who got away with thousands of pounds worth of tools and equipment.

The meeting is to be held at the United Services Club on Waterloo Lane on Tuesday, 12 July at 7.30pm.
