Anti Social Behaviour
Halloween / Bonfire Night
Have fun, but think of others is the message
Have fun, but be sensible and considerate is the message in the run up to Halloween and bonfire night.
The Harborough District Community Safety Partnership (CSP) is giving away free double sided 'No Thanks' or 'Welcome Here' posters to trick or treaters.
We are also encouraging people to go to organised displays for bonfire night and reminding everyone that it is illegal to buy or possess fireworks under the age of 18.
Cllr Colin Golding, chairman of the CSP, said: "Enjoy yourself this Halloween, but remember not everyone wants to take part in trick or treating. Respect the wishes of elderly and vulnerable members of our community, and don't call at homes displaying 'No Thanks' posters. We also take the throwing of eggs and flour very seriously. So have fun, but be sensible."
Sgt Pete Jelbert of Harborough Police added: "In previous years we have seen a reduction in anti-social behaviour around Halloween and bonfire night and we are keen that this trend continues. I think people are getting the message that elderly and vulnerable people should be respected and that is reflected in their general good behaviour."
