Hal­loween thrills for trick or treaters

Isis Town and Country - - News -

NEXT Mon­day be pre­pared to hear the pit­ter-pat­ter of mini zom­bies, ghosts, mon­sters and witches when they take to the streets to cel­e­brate Hal­loween.

Al­though this spooky night is fun for many, po­lice un­der­stand not ev­ery­body wel­comes trick or treaters.

To help and to in­di­cate if trick or treaters are wel­come at your house, or if you wish not to be dis­turbed, the po­lice cre­ated posters to be dis­played at your doorstep or let­ter­box.

If trick or treaters are wel­come at your home, down­load and print the poster.

If you do not wish to par­tic­i­pate, down­load and print the No Thanks poster.

To make sure your night doesn’t be­come a pain in the neck, trick or treaters should:

Be ac­com­pa­nied by a mother witch or fa­ther ghoul at all times (or an­other re­spon­si­ble vam­pire);

To avoid be­com­ing a hoblin gob­lin, aka a ghost with a bro­ken leg, you should walk, not run, be­tween houses and stick to the foot­path rather than the road;

Black cats don’t want to be seen, and for good rea­son, but if you wear black, it will re­duce your vis­i­bil­ity to pass­ing mo­torists;

To avoid rais­ing the dead or caus­ing witches to fly off their han­dle, keep ex­ces­sive noise down while cel­e­brat­ing;

Never en­ter a stranger’s house, or a witch’s broom closet for that mat­ter, even if they have in­vited you in after knock­ing on their door; and

Con­sider join­ing your friends or broom-mates on your neigh­bour­hood ad­ven­ture – there is safety in num­bers.
