The ‘Tip of the Week’- Protecting Your Home From Break-ins. Number one tip is don’t advertise you are away. The first thing a burglar looks for when choosing a house to break into is one with no one in. If your house looks occupied when you are out most burglars will simply pass by. Use automatic light timers, also timers for radios and TV’s. Never leave doors/windows unlocked and don’t hide a key outside. Ask a neighbour to pick up your post if you are away.

The weekly ‘working evening’ meets in the village square at 7.30pm each Tuesday, volunteers are always welcome.
