Tips for a fun night:


* Respect people with ‘No Trick or Treater’ signs in their windows. Only approach houses that have decorations up to show they are happy to take part in the tradition.

*Consider calling at houses where you know the occupants, rather than strangers

*Stay in a group and look out for one another

*Remember road safety and consider wearing something bright over Halloween costumes

*Don’t scare or hurt others – the festivities aren’t for everyone, so respect those that don’t want to get involved.

*If you do see any anti social behaviour taking place tonight, you can either call 101 to report it to us, or send a private message to this page. If it is an emergency, always call 999.

*Be safe, be seen, and be sensible.
