A KINDLY pensioner has offered help to a community farm where chickens were killed after arsonists set a hut on fire.
Chapeltown resident Muriel Spooner, aged 85, wrote to The Star after Loxley Valley Community Farm was targeted last week.
At least two chickens died and £2,000 of damage was caused.
Mrs Spooner offered the farm some green wire netting to help ramp up security.
She said: “It was terrible news.
“I hope they can keep the farm going.”
Farm director Warren Trippet said they would use the netting to protect chickens or keep intruders out.
