Please be safe this Christmas, and follow our simple guide below:

  • Don’t overload electrical extensions, they are rated at maximum of 13amps only
  • Don’t let your natural Christmas tree dry out
  • Choose a spot for your tree away from a heat source
  • Before you bring the tree into your home and place it in a stand , re-cut the trunk 1 inch from the bottom just before putting it into your stand
  • Keep electrical lights and decorations away from the water container at the base of the tree
  • Find the freshest tree you can
  • Make sure you use lights specifically designed outdoor use, outside
  • Turn off your lights when you are not using them, this will save on energy use but make sure nothing can happen when you are not around

Have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy your festivities!!
