I think we all know that something big is going on this coming weekend? Yes, the annual Locksmiths' Exhibition opens its doors on Saturday! We're expecting in excess of 1400 visitors - hope to see you there! ANNOUNCEMENT THURS 28TH FEB: Just before the show kicks off we have pre registered visitor No 1250 Steve Calow - Steve if you find me when you arrive I will treat you to lunch. Mick.
One other thing. We've had a notification from the police re an increase in heating oil theft during the present cold weather. Their advice to homeowners is below, but it strikes us that rural based or mobile locksmiths could turn this into a sales opportunity for additional security. Don't wait for them to come to you after they have had their oil stolen, perhaps on your travels or via a leaflet campaign to isolated properties you could point out the risks and get them to come to you beforehand? Maybe even contact your local heating oil supplier and get a list of addresses from them where they deliver, or they might even hand out your leaflets for you when they deliver the oil? Brand it as a service from you both and you could all be winners!
