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.
- Colour in our spooky Keep it Treat colouring-in posters - Download and print here: Pumpkins, Masks, Bats
- 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.
- Dress up in your spookiest costume and see who scores highest on the scare-o-meter!
- Go to town decorating your house this season. You can find lots of ideas on the CBBC website.
- Have a Halloween hunt in your home and hide some treats and spooky surprises!
- Have a Halloween movie night at home. Even for very young children there are some family favourites.

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.
