Take Care and Be Aware!

Think - Be Aware Who You Scare

'Take Care and Be Aware' is about making sure that Halloween is a 'treat' for everyone and that you don't go out with a bang on Bonfire Night.

Halloween can be harmless fun but some members of the community can become distressed by unexpected trick or treaters. Part of a wider ‘Take Care and Be Aware’ initiative, young people are being encouraged to ‘Think – Be Aware Who You Scare’ and to follow some simple dos and don'ts this Halloween and Bonfire. 

We want everyone to have fun over this celebratory period but it's important to remember to stay safe.

Happy Halloween and Bonfire!


Remember: THINK - Be Aware Who You Scare this Halloween.

Stay safe and follow the simple dos and don'ts in the download below.

If you experience anti-social behaviour during this time contact:
