Forbes own branch of Neighbourhood Watch hosted its first ever Home Security Information Expo at Bunnings on Sunday 11 October. About 45 people attended the event including Mayor Phyllis Miller who opened the Expo by
welcoming the audience and thanking Bunnings for coming to Forbes.
Police Constable Daniel Greef spoke for a while on a range of issues and provided some very good tips on how to improve the security in your home, around your home and when obtaining cash from ATMs. Constable Greef can also offer free home security assessments so if you are interested, feel free to give him a call at the Forbes Police
Station on 6853 9999.
Bunnings staff members presented informative, helpful and entertaining demonstrations on a great range of home security products, including alarms, locks, safes and solar lights. Seven lucky people in the audience also won some fantastic prizes which were generously donated by Bunnings.
After the Expo, a BBQ was hosted by Forbes Neighbourhood Watch volunteers. The organisers would like to sincerely thank the Mayor for attending, the Forbes Shire Council for their financial support for this event, Anita Morrison for her efforts and suggestions, Bunnings for staging this Expo at their Forbes store, Constable Daniel Greef, Bunnings staff members April Townsend, Brenda Weatherall, Sid Zuliani, Jason Godden and the people of Forbes who attended this successful Home Security Information Expo. Enjoy living in Forbes!
