Holidays

 

Holiday time has arrived, and anyone going away from home should take measures to ensure that your home is safe and secure whilst you are not there. Before you go, be careful when cancelling papers and milk; do this by letter and don’t talk about going away in public areas such as the local shop or pub. If you are lucky enough to have good neighbours, ask them to remove post on a daily basis, and if possible, to open and close curtains morning and evening.  If your neighbour is not able, the Post Office operates a ‘Keepsafe’ service to hold your mail whilst you are away. Having lamps controlled by timer switches is a good way to give the impression that someone is at home. Make sure they go on and off around the house to mimic your daily routine. Don’t put your home address on your luggage label, a telephone number will do.  Don’t leave a phone message giving any indication that you are away.  Most importantly of all, before you leave, lock all external doors and windows, including any conservatory ventilation, and set your alarm if you have one.
