Flytipping at Albrighton Allotments

Flytipping at Albrighton Allotments

We are deeply saddened to have been notified of another case of flytipping which has taken place on Parish Council owned land, on the Allotment Carpark this week.

Please note that this is not acceptable behaviour to dump any rubbish or building waste on our land and is in fact flytipping. We are lucky that the Allotments Association have kindly offered to remove the wood chippings on this occasion, however, we have advised them to report to the police and would be grateful for any witness information on this event.
