Hello, my name is Norma and I live alone in a small village in rural Norfolk. My husband passed away several years ago and my son lives in Manchester so I don't have anyone around the house. Since the local police station was closed, I have been really worried about being in the house on my own at night. Our little village is pretty safe but you do hear some terrible things on the news. My son suggested that I have new locks installed on my doors and windows. The local locksmith was really nice and he gave me some top tips about home security. I decided to start this blog to help others.
