Sorry to hear about the break in Wrinkly    usf:-(   As you say it,s not just the tools they take but the damage that they do getting into the shed,s with any luck the thieving  bast++ds will die a lingering death ..  Dont let them  stop you doing what you enjoy doing  ..

Idle swines - I'm a firm believer in Siberian labour camps when it comes to 'low-life' like that.  Angry:-{

Dave's had his share of problems like that on his site.

 Angry:-{ As Gee said we have had trouble in the past from the light fingered swines, 4 times I was broken into along with 12 other sheds so we spent £480 on new high security Locks with special keys that can only be cut by the locksmith with signatures of the committee to give permission for new keys to be cut. It gives us better control over who has a key, in the past any one could have had a new key cut consequently people could access the site who weren't plot holders. So far this year no break ins.
