Happy Halloween


Halloween is a great time for your little ones to dress up and spend some time together with the family meeting neighbours and bagging a sweet treat.

With the nights getting darker and everyone in costume we have put together a little list of a few do's and dont's to make sure everyone has a fun and safe evening. 

Trick or Treaters

  • Have fun dressing up and getting in the spirit (that includes you parents)
  • If possible try to trick or treat between the hours of 4pm and 7pm 
  • If there is a house with no decorations and lights off please do not knock, remember the elderly may be afraid, they may not celebrate Hallows eve or there may be a baby/child sleeping (shhh)
  • Have your child wear something recognizable this can be a coloured headband / wristband as there may be other children in the same costume and we don’t want the little munchkins getting lost in other groups. It may be an idea to write your number down should they stray you can be easily reunited
  • Make sure the kiddies always say thank you (monsters have manners) 
  • Chuck out any sweets without a wrapper
  • Make sure your children always stay on the doorsteps and never enter a person's home
  • If your child is going out without you make sure they stick to known streets and have your number & home address on them in case they get lost


  • Have fun dressing up and getting in the spirit it’s not just for those trick or treating
  • If you would prefer to not have trick or treaters, avoid putting out any decorations and keep the lights off to avoid attention
  • Don’t offer sweets / treats that are not in wrappers - they will only be thrown out (what a waste)
  • If someone knocks on your door with a blue pumpkin bucket please be aware this adult/child is autistic
  • When you run out of sweets blow out your pumpkin so people know not to disturb you

Have fun trick or treating :)
