In the early hours of Saturday morning, the fire brigade were called to Roedale Valley allotments. They were unable to save three allotment sheds which were burnt to the ground. This is not the first time sheds have been burnt down over night on the allotment site. The ferocity of the fire has left surrounding trees scorched and hedges obliterated – at a time when there are many nesting birds.
Following inspection of the site, a section of fencing was found to have been cut through and pushed back to allow entry or exit from the site onto the golf course.
If any one has any information or saw or heard anything at the Golf Drive end of the allotments late Friday night/early Saturday morning, or sees any one who clearly isn’t an allotment holder on, or accessing the plots, please report to Sussex Police – How to tell us about an existing case or report | Sussex Police
