Message Type Icon Burglary warning as clocks go back
With the clocks going back and the evenings start to draw in, we’re urging residents to check their home security.  

With more homes empty after sunset, it is so important to make sure your home is protected from opportunistic burglars.   ·  Keep a light on when you go out or use timer switches (battery or solar powered lamps are great for keeping costs down)  ·  Lock all windows and doors, even when you’re at home  ·  Don’t leave valuable items on display ·  Close your blinds and curtains at night to prevent people looking into your home ·  Install good lighting, for example exterior lights with dawn-to-dusk sensors and an alarm. ·  Do not leave car keys near the front door or anywhere easy to find.  

Don’t become a victim of a burglary, visit our website to find out how to protect your home.  

Kind regards,
