Cheshire Police is encouraging the public to enjoy their scary celebrations this Halloween, but to do so safely and within the law.
Superintendent Jo Marshall-Bell said: “With Hallowe’en creeping up on us we want to take the opportunity to remind our communities that not everyone likes this ghostly time of year, and it can actually leave people feeling quite vulnerable and scared.
Hallowe’en by nature is a fun time of year, and we don’t want to stop people having a good time. But it is important that everyone behaves in a responsible manner, and remembers that not everyone wants to participate. What may seem like a bit of harmless fun can actually have a significant impact on people and local communities.
Hallowe’en is a time when you can dress up and become anything that you want to be – choose to be kind and respect your neighbours.
I’d also like to reassure residents who may be feeling worried about the Hallowe’en and bonfire period that we will have an increased officer presence out on the streets making sure crime and anti-social behaviour is kept to a minimum.
Frodsham Town Council is providing a free children’s Halloween Party for youngsters to have fun in a responsible way. More details HERE.
Double sided posters with “yes or no” to trick or treaters are available to download and print – you can put them in the windows of their home to let trick or treaters know if they are OK to knock, or if you prefer to be left in peace.
