Members in Ayrshire are being urged to be extra vigilant following a rise in thefts from rural properties across Ayrshire.
The thefts have ranged from small hand tools to vehicles. Therefore, always ensure outbuildings are safely locked with keys kept away from these buildings; remove valuable items from cars; be vigilant!
Finally, if you haven't already signed up to Rural Watch Ayrshire, now is the time to do so. Again, just send your details to Graeme and he will then keep you informed of what is happening in Ayrshire.
