For those of you who enjoy taking part in activities during Halloween, please make sure that you and your children do so safely with alternative ways of having fun.
Some suggestions include;
• Create a pumpkin trail where you live so everyone can join in without knocking on doors.
• Be active: get dressed up and take a walk around your neighbourhood to see homes decorated for Halloween.
• Be virtual: consider an online party with decorations, fancy dress and themed food. Play games, bake treats or tell spooky stories.
• Be social: take pictures of your spooky costumes and activities to share on social media.
• Be colourful: dress up the outside of your house with Halloween decorations for you and your neighbours to enjoy.
• Be treat-wise: buy your own sweets.
• Be bright: if you carve a pumpkin, use a battery-powered light inside it to reduce the risk of fire.

Please take care to stick to the everyday Covid-19 safety rules over Halloween and half term. Follow the “Hands. Face. Space” advice and;
• Wash your hands regularly and take hand sanitiser if you go out.
• Wear a face covering indoors where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
• Stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or one metre where extra precautions are in place such as indoor ventilation.
• When seeing friends and family you do not live with, or who are not part of your support bubble, do not meet in groups of more than six indoors or outdoors.
• When meeting friends and family you should also follow social distancing rules, meet people outdoors where practical and limit how many different people in total you see socially over a short period of time.
