LOCK UP

Central Otago Mirror - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

This might seem like a no­brainer, but al­ways lock your house be­fore you leave, even if you’re just nip­ping down the road. It might be tempt­ing to keep your win­dows and doors open dur­ing sum­mer, but think about in­stalling se­cu­rity latches first. If you live in a large house and spend most of your time at one end, make sure the other end is se­cure; you’d be sur­prised at how many bur­glar­ies hap­pen while res­i­dents are at home or in the back­yard. and tools hid­den away in your garage. Think about where you set your Christ­mas tree up too. Fairy lights shin­ing out onto the street might look nice, but so might that big pile of presents.
