With the clocks going back this weekend, the nights unfortunately will be getting darker much earlier. I know the question as to why we have to change the clocks has been raised many times, but for myself, I do wonder why – I much prefer lighter evenings and hate the thought of going home from work in the dark!
We also have upon us Halloween, Bonfire night and how many days is it before Christmas? It does mean that more people are going out to various events and shopping and leaving their house unoccupied. Do take some simple precautions to protect your home, because burglars will use these opportunities to “shop” for their Christmas presents at your expense!!
- ensure your home is well lit at all times, by using timer switches inside and external lighting outside
- always lock your doors and windows
- set alarms
- keep valuables out of view and register them on http://www.immobilise.com
Please take care and have a crime free lead up to Christmas!
