Please only take food or drink from the fridge if you bought it.

Please only take food or drink from the fridge if you bought it.

The number of complaints about food being stolen from the pantry refrigerators has skyrocketted this term. I find it quite extraordinary and most disappointing that adults at some of the best higher education institutions in the world engage in such petty theft.

Most of us who live here in Hall would not dream of stealing food from someone else. Yet it seems there is a very small minority of inconsiderate, dishonest, self-centred delinquents who have no qualms about engaging in theft from their neighbours and supposed friends. It really is extremely sad. This behaviour has no place in our Hall community.

I want to express my absolute condemnation of this selfish behaviour, and my sympathy with anyone whose things have been stolen. I am open to suggestions as to ways in which we can combat this pernicious behaviour - warden@connaught-hall.org.uk.
