Message from Sure Start Children’s Centres on Halloween Safety

Posted on

As we are excited and getting ready for Halloween, Sure Start Children’s Centres would like to remind everyone from the young to the young at heart to be mindful and remain safe during this spooktacular time.


  • Only trick or treat in your own neighbourhood unless you are with an adult​
  • Stay in well lit areas where there are plenty of houses​
  • Make sure an adult knows the area you plan to visit and what time you’ll be back​
  • Look out for ‘no callers please’ posters and respect your neighbours​
  • Keep to pavements and trick or treat on one side of the street before crossing safely to the other side – don’t criss-cross
  • Wait to eat any treats until you get home so that an adult can check them​


  • Don’t cut through back alleys, ginnels or fields, and don’t trick or treat too far from home​
  • Don’t go alone – take an adult with you or stay in a group​
