Don’t you love something for free? I do. I especially love winning competitions. So what is on offer here and why? How do I enter? When does the competition close? Is there anything I have to do when I win?
What could I win? Fivestar Locksmiths are very generously offering one prize with two options – you get to choose which one you would like to have.
- Re-key 4 locks valued at $275, or
- Supply & install 2 x deadbolts valued at $319
Why? As a parent, and even before really, security is really important. I know when my other half has been away overnight I double check the doors to ensure they are locked. I don’t even think about it otherwise! So it is really important to feel secure in your own home, or know that your home is secure when you are away on vacation, which is pretty important at this time of year. And as the world has changed our familiarity and knowledge of our neighbours has perhaps lessened. So I liked that Fivestar Locksmiths have recently teamed up with Neighbourhood Watch to explain to neighbourhood communities how to make their premises more secure. For those of you who are not familiar with Neighbourhood Watch, it is a community based crime prevention program which aims to improve the quality of life within a neighbourhood by endeavouring to minimise preventable crime and promoting closer community ties. And as a somewhat recent parent you suddenly realise how important your community is, and that you are a part of it. And as someone who has been involved with the Police in the earlier part of my career, there are so many simple actions we can take to be a little bit safer.
I can also personally recommend Five Star. There was a problem with the lock on the security door at the main entrance to our building. A number of quotes were obtained, and Five Star were selected as the quote was good value. They then did an excellent and very tidy job.
How do I enter? Please answer the question, how many times have I locked myself out? in the comments, along with your contact email address or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with your email address. How simple! And if you are feeling generous or know of someone who could benefit from this prize please let them know about the competition.
