Have fun, but stay safe during Halloween and bonfire night

Children and young people in Blaby district are being asked to have fun, but stay safe over Halloween and bonfire night.

The Blaby District Community Safety Partnership has issued a leaflet to every pupil in all local primary schools with top tips on staying safe while having fun.

The BB19 youth bus will also be visiting Trinity Park in Whetstone on Thursday (October 27th) and Countesthorpe Medical Centre on Friday (October 28) offering special Halloween themed activities to youngsters from 6.30pm – 8.30pm.

Councillor Ted Webster-Williams, chair of the community safety partnership in Blaby district said:

“It is important that young people have fun but also that they don’t get carried away and injure themselves or cause distress to vulnerable residents.

“We want the whole community to have a safe, secure and enjoyable Halloween and bonfire night.”

An online web chat is also taking place on Thursday October 27 from 6.30pm-7.30pm giving people the opportunity to discuss crime prevention, anti-social behaviour or any other issues relating to community safety in Blaby district during the run up to Halloween.

Police and community safety officers from Blaby District Council will be online to answer questions at www.leics.police.uk/blabywebchat.
