I am not going to say anything about this death, other than the official statement by South Yorkshire police. We still haven’t been informed by South Yorkshire police, whether the stabbing was committed here or the body was later brought to this site? Following the statement by South Yorkshire police, I will show you what I have been trying to do over the years to make this the Victoria st allotment and footpath safer.
It was only back in November of 2017 when there was a serious Clown attack on the same footpath. The 16-year-old boy could have lost his eye, even worse his life. He was bashed on the side of the end with a piece of wood.

Victoria st allotments environmental decay.
What I would like to add, is that I have been trying to get the Victoria st allotment site and footpath cleaned up since I moved close by in March of 2015. I don’t believe I have had the full support of Rotherham borough council.
Two articles about my initiative in the local newspaper. asking my community to help me to do something about the litter and the Victoria st allotments. This was back in November 2015
Video of the Victoria allotment site in the summer, since then matters have gotten much worse with fly tipping. 20/30 bags of household rubbish were dumped from the service rd on Victoria st. Reported months ago to Rotherham council who have done nothing about it. Found 4 dead rats around this household waste. I have been promised so many times that a local group would clear two of the allotments, but this has never happened. Rotherham council have the powers to make the 4 allotment owners fence off their sites and clean up, but they won’t use them and keep fobbing me off.
This was a picture trail of the Victoria st allotment site back when I first came to live here Spring of 2015. The first picture has since been cleared of these overgrown trees and wildflowers will be planted down here in summer. Simon Tweed my local Ward councillor and the Rotherham council land terriers helped make this possible. It certainly makes this area feel safer.
I am really hoping this sad event will inspire the community to help clean our community of litter and fly tipping and make it feel safer and a place to be proud of.
Please find out more about what I am doing.
