If You Are Going Away ...Ask a Neighbour to Look After Your Home
Ask a trusted person to pick up the post, pull the curtains at night and put your refuse bin out on collection day. This all helps to make your home look occupied while you’re away this Christmas.  

If you’re going away for Christmas. Invite a neighbour to park on your drive. This will look that there is someone home. 

Light Up Your Home
Light up you home using a timer switch or TV simulator if you’re going away for Christmas.
