+1 for Victoria Nurseries. They sell good quality turf and you can buy as much or as little as you need.

Buying a cheap shopping trolly on wheels comes to mind. Must be easier than trying to push a supermarket trolly any distance. But guess these people are too selfish to shell out on one!
Barry S
This problem has been going on for years ,just after Asda was opened . I was the councillor for the area and had numerous meetings with Asda . I would suggest someone contact the local councillors for help.

An Oxford Hardcore Motorcycle lock would stop the thefts happening. I have used one for ten years, never had a bike stolen
