Don’t Be A Monster This Halloween‏

Halloween Card 2014_001Young people in Broxtowe, along with their parents and carers are being encouraged to make Halloween safe and enjoyable this year, as part of Broxtowe’s ‘No Trick or Treat’ campaign.

As part of the campaign, Broxtowe Borough Council and Nottinghamshire Police are urging local people to help put a stop to the anti-social behaviour that is often associated with Halloween by not visiting houses displaying No Trick or Treat cards.

No Trick or Treat door and window cards will be available for free from various locations in the Borough, including the Council Offices in Beeston, libraries and police stations, as well as being available to download from the Council’s website at www.broxtowe.gov.uk or see below.

By following a few simple tips, trick or treaters can help keep themselves and others safe:

· Children should always go trick or treating with an adult

· Stay in areas that are well-lit with street lights

· Do not knock on doors where there is a ‘No Trick or Treat’ sign

· Do not enter any house – always stay on the doorstep

· Be considerate – do not frighten vulnerable people, especially the elderly

· Do not throw items like eggs and flour – this is not a trick and can be classed as criminal damage or even assault.

For more information, please contact Broxtowe Borough Council on 0115 917 3744, email spc@broxtowe.gov.uk or visit www.broxtowe.gov.uk
