Halloween is traditionally a night of fun and frolics with children visiting houses in their neighbourhood, saying "Trick or Treat". Children enjoy dressing up as ghosts or witches or other assorted monsters, and most householders are happy to hand over sweets or other presents to ward off the evil spirits. However, occasionally groups of young people knock at every door whether they know the residents or not, demanding some sort of gift or payment. For the vulnerable or older members of the community this can be a frightening and intimidating experience, so please follow these simple guidelines to ensure a trouble free evening for all:

  • Ensure children are accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Explain how vulnerable people can be frightened by an unexpected group calling at their door on a dark evening.
  • Only knock at houses where you know you will be welcome.
  • Respect the "Please No Trick or Treat" notice where it is displayed.
