Have a safe Halloween

October 28th 2019

imageIf you are going trick or treating this Halloween, have a SPOOKTASTIC time and be safe but remember, not everyone wants you to call at their home. Sorry… no trick, or treat this Halloween – the campaign encourages residents who do not want to be bothered by trick-or-treaters to place this poster on the front door or window of their home. Some people, particularly if elderly or vulnerable, might be distressed by strangers knocking at their door during the evening. We are asking people not to call at homes that are displaying the poster. Print this poster and display on your home, or on the homes of your vulnerable neighbours or relatives. You may be dressing up as a spooky ghost, a wicked witch or a big orange pumpkin but remember to make sure it is a fun night by staying safe. There are six top tips for young people at Halloween: Always be accompanied by an adult when you are trick-or-treating. You should only go to houses of people that you know and who are happy for you to call. Stay safe, keep to places that you know and are well lit. Do not take short cuts through gardens, alleyways or parks. Watch out for traffic – drivers might not see you. If you are wearing a mask make sure that you can see where you are going and are aware of your surroundings. Carry a torch and a fully charged mobile phone (if you have one).
