Stay safe and have a fang-tastic Halloween

We can still have a spooktacular time this Halloween and help keep H&F safe at the same time as COVID-19 cases continue to rise across London.

There is lots of fun to be had at home and in the garden this year with your family and support bubble. 

Check out our list of things to do at home:  
  1. Colour in our spooky Keep it Treat colouring-in posters - Download and print here: Pumpkins, Masks, Bats
  2. Pumpkin carving is a great activity to do at home, why not have a competition with your friends and share the results via Zoom, Google or Skype.
  3. Dress up in your spookiest costume and see who scores highest on the scare-o-meter!
  4. Go to town decorating your house this season. You can find lots of ideas on the CBBC website.
  5. Have a Halloween hunt in your home and hide some treats and spooky surprises!
  6. Have a Halloween movie night at home. Even for very young children there are some family favourites. 
  7. Bake some special Halloween treats, there are lots of Halloween inspired recipes on the BBC Good Food website.

Remember the safety guidelines 

  • Keep to the rule of six outdoors only and remember hands, face, space.
  • Remember that the longer you are with other people the higher the risk.
  • Maintain physical distance from people you don’t live with.

If you have COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in contact with anyone with COVID-19 you must self-isolate and not take part in any activities or hand out treats. Visit GOV.UK: coronavirus for more information.

Halloween is a night of innocent fun for many, but for some residents, having an unexpected caller can be distressing and frightening.

Although we don’t expect anyone will be trick or treating this year, we have produced a poster and are encouraging residents who do not wish to have Halloween callers, to display our ‘no trick or treaters’ poster on their door or in their front windows.

Any anti-social behaviour should be reported using either our anti-social behavious reporting form or the police non-emergency number 101. If you feel threatened, if it's an emergency, or if a crime is in progress, dial 999.
