Its pretty scary how time flies but a year ago we published an article about Halloween and how the custom developed.

Cheshire Police have a few sensible points for us all to remember

If you are intending to go out collecting some of that sugar based goodness most of us enjoy, remember to stay safe by going to areas you know and go with a small group of people. Don't enter any house, always stay on the doorstep and for younger children, always go trick or treating with an adult. Whilst Cheshire is a safe place to enjoy your Halloween, it's always best to take care as you would on any night when you are out.

It's also important to remember that not everyone will want to be disturbed by Trick or Treaters. The best way to avoid any problems is to look for signs that the house is taking part in Halloween. If a property is decked out with pumpkins, skeletons or bats etc. it's safe to assume that the people there will not be offended by the arrival of the un-dead asking for free food!

It's also good to remember that on Halloween there will be other groups out trick or treating and many will include small children who might be frightened by costumes which are particularly gruesome. Be considerate and think about avoiding doing anything that might upset them or any of the older members of the community.

Whilst we want everyone to enjoy Halloween we want to make it clear that Cheshire Police will not tolerate any form of anti-social behavior in the county, this includes throwing eggs and flour which will get you into trouble. Anyone arrested for anti-social behaviour will be dealt with as they would on any other night of the year.

(Ed. Cheshire police are giving out posters for people to put in windows which will indicate if they are happy or NOT for Trick or Treaters to call by. These can be found for you to download and print if you follow the links in our original article at the top of the page.)
