Gardeners in the community gathered at allotments on Saturday, April 25, to support a new police initiative.

PCSO Jayne Richardson and PCSO Dave Bunker attended sites on Graham Road Skegness and Count Alan Road, Winthorpe, to launch ‘Allotment Watch’.

At Graham Road they were joined by Skegness Mayor Coun George and Mayoress Julie Saxon and Skegness town manager Lisa Collins.

PCSO Bunker: “Allotment holders are sending the message - Our community is crime aware and on guard, move on thief!”
