The ‘Tip of the Week’- Preventing Burglaries. (1) Lock your doors and windows, sounds simple, but the data tells us we are not locking our front door or rear windows. One in three burglaries has been prevented by this simple action. (2) When we are in our homes and gardens we should lock doors and windows that are out of sight. (3) When leaving our homes ensure that the windows and doors are fully secured. Use your security alarm if you have one. Ask a neighbour or friend to check your home if you are going to be away for longer periods. Lock and secure sheds/garages, tools and ladders are valuable property and aids to burglars.

Last year’s committee was reinstated again, with Dave Corboy as Chairman, Ronan Fox as Secretary, Dave Whelan as Treasurer and Paul Moran PRO, team managers to be confirmed in the coming weeks. On the night topics discussed were: fund raising, training and various team affairs. The possibility of starting school boy teams was also discussed and will be decided in the next few weeks. Anyone interested in helping out with these said teams please contact any of the above committee. Thank you to the two Dave’s and Ronan for their detailed reports and to those who showed up on the night.
