Be Safe This Hallowe’en!
Hallowe’en can be a lot of fun but it can also be frightening for some people and there are some risks as well.
I suggest you don’t:
- Go alone – ‘trick or treating’ is more fun and safer if you go in a small group with friends and family.
- Go into houses – stay on the doorstep where the responsible adult can see you.
- Play pranks that may damage property – this could result in arrest and a criminal record.
- Demand money or intimidate people – Halloween can be a night that some residents dread, so be respectful and polite.
- Throw eggs or flour – it’s classed as a criminal offence and you will be arrested!
You can print out posters to show whether you want to participate in Trick or Treating or not.
There are several websites you can visit for more advice, posters to print and fun ideas such as:
And make sure you are safe on the roads by dressing to be seen – wear light, reflective clothes or carry a lamp or torch so that drivers and your responsible adult can see you. You can buy reflective badges and clips from the kiosk at school (prices range from 60p to £1.40)
