The Tip of the Week is – Garages and sheds are full of expensive tools which are ideal for breaking into the rest of the house. Fit strong locks on garage and shed doors and make sure doors are solid enough not to be kicked in. Lock ladders inside the garage and shed. Also make note of the serial numbers of expensive equipment, it makes it more traceable if stolen.

We welcome into the community Noah Fletcher and Katie Burke who were recently baptised.
