Neighbourhood Watch

Winter weather doesn’t deter criminals: in January so far there have been at least 3 actual or attempted burglaries and 1 bicycle theft in Woodland Gardens alone. Please protect all your property all the year round!

Quote from the Police “Operation Be-Safe”: Simple steps to secure your home: Ensure doors and windows are properly locked with a key when leaving home; keep valuables out of sight and out of reach; lock side gates and store bins behind them; packaging left outside can indicate the existence of expensive new items inside (especially after Christmas), so avoid that.

Quote from another recent Police message: Over 15,000 motorcycles, mopeds and scooters were stolen in London in the year to September (half of all vehicles stolen); the theft of a moped, scooter or motorcycle takes only a matter of seconds if they are left with inadequate or no security; reduce your chances of becoming such a victim by using 2 or more security measures.
