DARKER NIGHTS -Home Security
Ensure your property is locked and secured at all times. leave a light on when you are out, or use a time switch on an indoor light. Put a time switch on a radio that has been tuned in to a chat station, this will give the impression that the house is occupied. Fit security lighting, either dusk to dawn energy efficient lighting that will come on automatically as dusk sets in, or brighter passive infrared activated lighting drawing attention to movement. Ensure that gates or access to the rear of the house are locked and secure. Dont forget to lock your shed as tools can be used to break in.
Secure windows, paying particular attention to those on the ground floor and above flat roof areas. Use locks and bolts and keep your keys out of sight and out of reach. Property mark your valuables by using your postcode and your house number or name. Some items are unsuitable for marking so photograph them, with a ruler in view to show the scale
Intruder alarms are an effective deterrent against burglars
WINTER'S ON THE WAY....ARE YOU PREPARED? TRY THIS TO FIND OUT...!
IS THIS FEEDING THE DUCKS OR DUMPING FOOD?
Photo taken 29th June at Gresford lake.
This is just a few of many mouldy burger buns seen floating on the lake. Dumping bread in large amounts is not good for the ducks or anything else. There are real concerns about over- feeding with bread , not least because it is encouraging rats...
We really need your help.
Either by joining us on our Tidy-Up Sundays or tackling the areas outside your own homes – just by weeding the area where your boundary line meets the pavement, or maybe a few yards either side, you can help make a real difference.
Also the curbsides are really scruffy in some areas.
We know that no-one used to have to do it, but let’s face it in the current financial climate the County Council are not going to be tackling weeds (although they are being good about taking the rubbish bags away when we have filled them up).
