Police give tips on shed security

SHOPPERS were offered advice on shed security by police at Tesco Extra, in Hollington, Last Thursday (May 17).

Members of the neighbourhood policing team were on hand with tips on keeping valuables safely locked away, and deterring thieves, at the “Sh-education” event.

Sergeant Dave Townsend said: “Sheds in particular can be vulnerable to break-ins.

“It is easy to forget that within our sheds we tend to store expensive equipment such as lawnmowers, barbeques and tools.

“Our aim is to Sh-Educate the people of Hastings and St Leonards to help them protect their property.”

The next events will be on Monday, May 28 at Asda, in Battle Road, between 10am and 1pm , on Tuesday, May 29, at Hastings Garden Centre, in Bexhill Road, between 10.30am and 2pm, on May 31, at Priory Meadow Shopping Centre, between 10am and 4pm, and at Alexandra Park on June 23.
