For some reason, police forces around the country seem to get together about this time of year to launch their annual campaigns against shed theft (West Yorkshire Police's Shedache poster is pictured above - shedache, get it?). But more power to their elbow, nonetheless. Although they usually concentrate on the more traditional type of shed rather than the garden office, their warnings that you need to be careful still stand. So check your locks (doors and windows), postcode your property (where applicable), consider an alarm/automatic lighting system and generally take a good hard look at how easy/difficult it would be for a baddie to force their way into your pride and joy. It is also worth having a word with your local police and asking them if they could come round and give you some advice. If anybody has a good tip regarding security, please leave a comment.
