Thanks Jet, you said the comment for me,  :D Unfortunately, there are a few around me that like to have their displays in the early hours of the morning. Trying to find which garden these missiles are coming from in the dark is virtually impossible. The sonic booms happen high above our houses. Yawn!

Fireworks are illegal here. So there are loads of them, all purchased up Norf and set orf clandestinely in the streets.

A reminder that there are two posters on the site that you can download for Halloween, one welcoming trick or treaters and the others saying no trick or treaters.

Hope the rain puts paid to these fireworks so the elderly, very young children and our pets can relax in peace in their own homes.

Hertfordshire police have issued a reminder for staying safe over Halloween. The main points contained on the link below are:
  • Never go trick or treating, or collecting ‘pennies for the guy’, alone – always take an adult with you.
  • Don’t knock on the doors of strangers, for your own safety always visit people you know.
  • Keep your ‘tricks’ safe – any deliberate behaviour that results in damage to property or hurts someone is a crime.
  • When you are out and about at night you should wear bright clothes and remember your road safety advice.
Stay Safe and Enjoy Halloween
And police they have again produced posters which people can download, print off and put in their windows to indicate to treat or treaters whether they are welcome or not, they are embedded below. Just click on them, download and print.

Herts police have just emailed another halloween reminder via the OWL service (Online Watch Link) - reproduced below.

Dear Watch Member,

Halloween can be a great and fun time, but for some people, it’s not an enjoyable day and they may get scared or frightened by other’s actions. It is important to remember to be aware of your behaviour and to take the simple steps to remain safe.

Remember:

- Never go trick or treating, or collecting ‘pennies for the guy’, alone always take an adult with you.

- Don’t knock on the doors of strangers, for your own safety always visit people you know.

- Keep your ‘tricks’ safe – any deliberate behaviour that results in damage to property or hurts someone is a crime.

- When you are out and about at night you should wear bright clothes and remember your road safety advice.

I have attached a poster for you to download and display on your property if you do not wish to be disturbed by 'trick or treaters' this Halloween.

Regards,
John Mitchell

I went out briefly at about 6 p.m. and it was lovely to see a group of little children with their parents only going to houses with indications of joining in the fun. 
Just the way it should be!

Hope everyone had an enjoyable evening with no problems.

 >:D  :)

Police have again issued posters for local residents to print off and use over Halloween. The two posters are for people who want to make it clear whether people calling for 'trick or treat' are welcome or not. Police say some local residents who are without email, especially the elderly, will not have received the message and might appreciate the offer of a poster being printed for them. Below is the welcome trick or treat poster.


And here is the not welcome poster.
