Halloween and trick or treating information and advice

Trick or treat - no thank youHalloween (or Hallowe'en) - the night of October 31st.

Halloween activities can include: trick-or-treating; bonfires and fireworks; ghost tours; costume parties; visiting 'haunted houses'; carving Jack-o'-lanterns; reading scary stories and watching horror movies.

Although Halloween can be a great deal of fun for those involved, for many it is a particularly distressing (or unwanted) time of year, particularly for some of the more vulnerable members of our communities - especially the elderly.

Please remember that not everyone will want to take part in your Halloween events or trick or treating - so please respect their point of view.
