Superstitious minds?

Do you count magpies and avoid black cats? Would you walk under a ladder and live at number 13? Whether you’re superstitious or not, it’s best not to rely on a charm to protect your property this Hallowe’en.  Last year, it was reported that seven homes in the UK were burgled every minute over the course of a year, with burglaries are more likely to involve forced entry into unoccupied houses during the Autumn and Winter months. Harry Potter has his Sheild Charm “Protego” but muggles need not worry as you can have Keybury.

Autumn Traditions

Autumn and Winter are full of traditions. Families are picking pumpkins and checking local listings for the best fireworks displays. This will soon be followed by Christmas markets and light switch on events in every town in Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Dark nights

There is a darker side to the season with one tradition none of us wants to be a part of. Crime rates traditionally soar at this time of year. Statistics from the coop report that burglaries spike by as much as 25% during Autumn and Winter months. The clocks go back at the end of October, making the nights even darker. On these dark evenings, Keybury’s bright blue back lit bell boxes can be clearly seen. Those scouting homes for the easiest target know to avoid an alarm which is likely to alert the owner to an intruder.
