Be safe tonight - Halloween!

For young children Halloween night is one of the best of the year.....Some people don't agree with children going out trick or treating but my girls do and a lot of children do where I live....



Plan a route in advance. Trick-or-treating could take you several streets away from your house which may feel different in the dark...Stick to paths that are well lit and one's that you and your child are familiar with...

Wear comfy shoes. Make sure you and your children are in comfortable, well-fitting shoes....Girls in dresses should avoid heels and all shoelaces should be double-tied to avoid tripping in the dark....

Stay well-lit. Apply reflective tape to your child’s costume to ensure they are seen by drivers on the road. Also carry a flashlight with you to keep your child’s path lit at all times....

Avoid any sweets that has loose wrappings or is unwrapped. Small children should have their sweets inspected by an adult before they eat them...

Stop. Look and listen! Be careful on the roads....As simple as this sounds it can be easy to forget especially when munching through a bag of Halloween treats! Remember road safety!....

Respect other people and their property. Don't trample through flower beds and gardens. Be polite and say "thank you"....Try to remember not everyone celebrates Halloween!!
