Guidelines:-

For many, especially those taking part, it’s a great, fun activity, but for others, who may not welcome numerous callers to their door, it can be a very unnerving and stressful time.

If you are planning to go trick or treating, please follow these simple guidelines.

  • Adults should ALWAYS accompany young children – NEVER let youngsters go trick or treating on their own !
  • Only go to houses where there are Halloween items on display such as pumpkins.
  • NEVER accept an invitation to go inside a strangers home
  • Always keep to well lit areas; wear bright clothing, carry a torch and remember road safety
  • Unless pre-arranged, DO NOT visit elderly members of your community
  • Be careful not to frighten vulnerable people
  • Keep any tricks within the law.
