Don’t get a fright this Halloween and follow these easy steps to keep your family and your home safe.
Richmond Council is asking parents to speak with their children if they are planning to go out on Halloween night and evenings across the holiday week.
Stay safe when trick or treating by following this advice:
Cllr Mark Boyle, Cabinet member for Housing, Public Health and Community Safety:
"Dressing up and going trick or treating should be fun, but children and their parents need to follow a few basic rules.
“Younger children should always be accompanied by an adult, and older children need to understand how to stay safe and respect the wishes of other residents who do not want to be involved."
