Trick or treating advice

We want you to enjoy Halloween, but remember, not everyone wants to take part!

Here's a few things to remember when you're out this Halloween.

• If you’re going trick or treating, make sure you go with an adult and your parent or carer knows where you’re going and when to expect you back.
• Don’t knock if there’s a sign saying ‘No trick or treat here.’
• Be careful not to frighten elderly or vulnerable people.
• Don’t go trick or treating alone - stay with your group.
• Only visit areas where there are streetlights.
• Don’t throw eggs and flour.
• Be careful crossing roads in the dark.

Have a great time, stay safe and look out for each other. If you or someone you know is in danger call 999.
