The Twelve Days of Christmas – Festive Advice



The Twelve Days of Christmas – Festive Advice

• When you’re out for the evening make sure someone knows where you are going and when you’ll be home
• Avoid walking home alone and never with someone you don’t know
• Drink responsibly and arrange for a member of your group to be a designated driver
• Never get into an unlicensed taxi
• Don’t leave presents under your Christmas tree if they are visible from windows or doors
• Keys should always be kept out of sight and not left in doors or in view of windows
• Make your house look occupied, use a timer switch to operate lamps as it starts to get dark
• Never keep large amounts of cash in your home
• Shopping with children? Make sure they learn to go to a store assistant or security guard if you get separated
• If you have presents in the car, keep them out of view in the boot, lock car and keep receipts with you.
• Don’t leave your car unattended and unlocked whilst defrosting
• Remember to look out for vulnerable neighbours and support your neighbourhood by keeping footpaths / access routes, snow and ice free
