Spring Has Arrived

At last we have started to see some warmer weather and people getting out in the gardens. This warmer weather normally brings out not just daffodils but also criminals who target garages and sheds.
Make sure you keep your gardening equipment secure from would be thieves as lawn mowers and strimmer’s are usually on their shopping list.
You can purchase relevantly cheap battery operated alarms for sheds and garages which if activated will deter a thief. Don’t by second hand items unless you are happy of where it has come from, if it sounds like a bargain it could be stolen.
