Holiday Security

Please see below for latest security advice from PC Paul Le Pla

Most burglaries occur when there is no-one home, so whether you are leaving the house for a few minutes, the day or a fortnight, remember to shut and lock all your windows and doors.

By now most of us are in a habit of making sure windows and doors are closed and locked on our vehicles and houses when we leave them, but in the excitement of going away, we can sometimes forget. If you have locks on your windows and a burglar alarm installed to your property it is important you use them.

It is advised you always try to make your home appear occupied. Here are some steps you can take to ensure this:

Get a friend, neighbour or relative to keep an eye on your house or flat. Even the smallest of jobs such as collecting post from the letterbox, sweeping up leaves, putting dustbins out and even mowing your lawn, can make it seem as though someone is home.
Cancel deliveries of milk and newspapers while you are away, as a clutter of these around your front door, becomes a clear sign that nobody is home.
Invest in some automatic time switches, which switch lights and radios on and off at set times.
Never leave blinds or curtains closed as this makes it obvious the property is empty during the day.

Anyone missing a grey wheelie bin?

A full grey wheelie bin has been discovered in Old School Close. It does not belong to any of the houses there.  It looks like a new bin so may have been recently ordered. It is thought that it may belong to a property in the Deweys Close/Butt Lane area of North Luffenham.  If any householder thinks it belongs to them the bin is currently reposing on the pavement outside No. 21 Church Street and can be collected from there
