Friday, 24 October 2014 09:55

The clocks go back an hour on Sunday 26th October. This will mean lighter mornings, and evenings getting darker, earlier and  we would like to remind residents of some general safety and security  advice.

Home Security

Ensure your property is locked and secured at all times. leave a light on when you are out, or use a time switch on an indoor light.  Put a time switch on a radio that has been tuned in to a chat station, this will give the impression that the house is occupied. Fit security lighting, either dusk to dawn energy efficient lighting that will come on automatically as dusk sets in, or brighter passive infrared activated lighting drawing attention to movement. Ensure that gates or access to the rear of the house are locked and secure. Dont forget to lock your shed as tools can be used to break in.

Holt Under Fives had their AGM on the 21st October and Gaynor Roberts has been re-elected as Chair with a strong committee alongside her. They are hoping to raise more funds this year and next to support their new wraparound facility, offering childcare throughout the day to local families and those in Holt CP School.

They have had a hugely busy year and have been immensely grateful as always to our wonderful community for all their help, support and generosity. Local businesses have been amazing in their support and so many people have helped with the relocation of the
Playgroup from the Community Centre, to the old Youth Centre as part of Holt CP School. Mrs Goodwin and Mrs Furber have made the transition easy and for that the Under 5's are incredibly grateful.

With celebrations for Halloween and Bonfire Night fast approaching, Community Safety Partners are once again joining forces to keep neighbourhoods safe. Police and Fire Service working with other key partners are able to promote key safety messages. It has been identified that this approach, along with targeted diversionary activities which engage young people in fun and entertaining events, can be very effective in ensuring that everyone can enjoy themselves safely.

Over the next few weeks, posters – including posters asking Trick or Treaters to move on – will be distributed to vulnerable residents by Local Policing Teams across the force area.
