Why You Need to Secure Your Sheds and Garages

UK burglary statistics from 2020 show that when a burglar enters a victim’s home they typically cause around £1413 worth of damage and steal around £2856 worth of valuables. In 44% of home burglaries the amount taken exceeds £1000 in value and notably, when entry is gained to a non-connected building (e.g. shed, garage or garden storage), at least £1000 worth of items are stolen.

What is the Best Bird Deterrent

The British Trust for Ornithology has estimated that bird-loving Brits spend in excess of £200 million every year on feeding wild birds in our gardens. The past 12 months, during which many of us have spent far more time at home due to the pandemic, has prompted renewed interest in our outdoor spaces. People have reported seeing more birds in their gardens and 54% have highlighted how watching birds, in their gardens and local areas, is a great way to relieve stress. But unfortunately - birds can sometimes be a nuisance or even become a health hazard.


How to Avoid Selection Bias

Thursday 6th May 2021

How to Avoid Selection Bias

Studies have shown that humans are simply incapable of making unbiased, random choices. For example, when people are asked to choose random numbers more will tend to select odd numbers than even.
