As Hallowe’en and Bonfire season begins, we typically see large crowds gathering to celebrate. On Hallowe’en night, please consider the vulnerable, particularly the elderly, who may feel anxious and intimidated by strangers knocking at their door. The misuse of fireworks and uninvited trick or treaters can be intimidating and are considered anti-social behaviour by some.
We are asking people to be aware of those who are not celebrating in the same way and respect those who feel anxious or intimidated by strangers knocking on their doors. We have posters that residents can display as a clear indication of whether they would like trick or treaters to visit.”
If you are looking to take part in the Hallowe’en celebrations then you can print off the
‘Trick or Treaters welcome’ poster.
To deter unwanted trick or treaters on October 31, this year is to print off the
‘No Trick or Treaters please’ posters
If you see someone displaying a no trick or treat poster, please do not call at those homes as people do not wish to be disturbed. Just be careful who you scare on Hallowe’en.
