Hello everyone, I’m going away on my holidays !

Easter is almost upon us, better weather, first long weekend break, and what are we doing?

Let’s go away for a long weekend !

Great fun, but have you made a few simple precautions and put them in place while you’re gone?

Who has watched you carefully open up the caravan or motor home, clean it, stock it, take note of your address, wait for an empty driveway, look for anyone left behind, and then come a calling to rob you.

Burglar – Well, you did tell everyone on Facebook and other media sites, didn’t you, so we know when you’re returning, so no rush to break in on night 1.

Have you got a NHW around you, and have you informed them and next door neighbours, and your local PCSO, that you are going on hols?

Papers cancelled, but have you left a key with a neighbour, so they can pop in and shut curtains and put lights on for you?

Have you got timers on desk and bedside lamps, that come on at unexpected times, just to put the burglar off?

Is it bin day as you leave? Will your neighbour push the bin back out of sight for you?

All are simple to remember and not costly ways to safeguard your home while you trot off for that lovely holiday……. and then come back to a non burgled house !

Don’t forget to check that gas and electrical items are safe to leave, and move valuables out of plain sight from windows.

15 minutes of thoughts and good preparation will save weeks of heartache, of remembering what has been stolen, and where the receipts are for the insurance claim……. by the way…you ARE contents insured, aren’t you ????
