A man called for an allotment in Eastwood to be tidied up at a meeting this week.
Colin Walker said the state of Dovecote Road allotments was ‘diabolical’ and something had to be done about it.
Me Walker made the comment at an Eastwood Town Council meeting on Monday.
He said fruit was recently taken from one of the allotments because someone thought it had been abandoned.
Councillors agreed gardeners needed to look after their patch more, and said they would also have a word with the council gardener about keeping it in a better condition.
