Can you give the Magpies polytunnel a new home?

Posted on

Magpies are advertising their polytunnel for sale. The reasons are continuous vandalism of the structure.

We can’t help but express our intense disapproval. It is regrettable that a couple of individuals lacking self respect or ambition choose to destroy the property of a charity that has offered so much to the wider community.

This is also a call for anyone who may have information about this. You can share this information directly with the police, or anonymously via Crimestoppers online or by telephone on 0800 555 111.

If you are interested in the Polytunnel or wish to assist the Magpies, please contact them directly via email: hello@magpies.org.uk or telephone: 01422 383550

We have found our polytunnel vandalised once again. Over the last few years, this has been a continuing problem and we have been unable to identify the culprits.  Our polytunnel offered a place for our members to practice their gardening skills, grow their own food and provided a space to relax and enjoy nature. Unfortunately, it has now got to the point where we can no longer use this due to the amount of damage caused and the safety of our members. We have therefore made the difficult decision to sell the frame of our polytunnel.

Here at Magpies we strive to provide the best facilities and experience for our members. Whilst we will no longer have a polytunnel, we want to put all our energy into our garden area to enable our members to still enjoy the delights of gardening and growing food and plants. Unfortunately, some of the garden area was destroyed by a fire a couple of years ago so it needs quite a lot of work to bring it back to its former glory. We particularly need the area to be safe and accessible which means quite a bit of groundwork is needed. If anyone can help with this or can offer help with other areas of the garden, it would be hugely appreciated.

If you are able to help us or interested in buying the polytunnel frame, please get in touch.
