A bad place for security firms

Tongue in cheek, our local locksmith describes Melksham as one of the worst possible places he could have chosen to set up his security business ... it's such a safe, low crime area that all the clever stuff that might be mandatory elsewhere just isn't needed here.

I was chatting with Harry, my son's father-in-law, the other day. He's visiting our part of the world for the first time and was commenting on how people around here leave things out "help yourself". I was a little surprised, but walking around Lacock yesterday afternoon I came across this sign (and others like it) and now I understand what he means.



It's hot already today, and our front door hangs open. No, I'm not worried about people just walking in. After all, this is Melksham!

But having written as I have above, I should point out that I can hear anyone who walks or drives up to our house so that they would be met at the door, and that we have appropriate security alarms built in and active. To give you a further clue ... for the new place, I have to look into data registration and how it relates to the CCTV system, and also how CCTV can be viewed via the internet. Relaxed, maybe ... but still secure.
