    Default Crazy things happening on allotments

    At my old allotment site we had this out of control volunteer group.
    They had loud parties at all hours of the AM, charging people 5 to 'get in' then thrashed the place, neighbours complaining. Stole committee beer and got wasted on said beer. Trashed the kitchen again and again, stored all their crap I there, started growing on other people's plots. Left food encrusted pots lying around for weeks, appropriated people's compost, sell said compost, wanted committee to compensate 300 for compost, smoking weed in full view. They took the tent who knows where and we all got soaked trying to have out committee meeting. Brought a dog on plot who trashed plotholders onions and I think crapped on my plot. One day I opened the garden storage bunker to find a bed, wardrobe, mattress and dining suite stuffed in there. And that's just scratching the surface.
    Thing was/is they're still there.

    I think the guy in charge's brain was damaged by drug use or he's permanently high as he cannot be reasoned with. For example, confronting him with they stole the 5 cases of beer, he harps on how many cases were there as it wasn't 5. The plotholders destroyed onions, well the dog was lost and you'd try to help a poor lost dog right?! The furniture in there belongs to a poor (illegal) immigrant facing deportation and is fighting her case in court. When they win the case they'll move it.

    Are things like the happening all over the country, or is it just me? Any weird/crazy allotment stories?

    I can see the problem you're from "North Dorset", have you just moved there

    Only joking, there are non as queer as folk, I worked with a guy who dug a large hole and buried his VW car in his back garden and then hid the lump by making it into a rockery.

    No not from there, just moved there. Was talking about goings on in my old allotment site.

    North Dorset is so far so good. Weirdest thing is townsfolk walk right through the site and some people are really nosy.
    I was told there is an 86 year old man who digs up everyone's plots. Was horrified thinking I'd come one day to find our plants dig up but apparently he asks first.

    Don't know how to reply to this. I thought my old site was bad ( it was ok until Jay-el moved in) but in retrospect it was Shangri-La compared to Squidgy site.
