Trick or Treat

Halloween is a time for ghosts and ghouls, witches and pumpkins. A time for fun, tricks, pranks and sweet treats. A time where skeletons and vampires roam the streets and candle lit lanterns light the way


Ordinarily, tomorrow evening would see children and parents out trick or treating, walking from house to house dressed up in terrifying costumes. Families and friends would be enjoying parties and coming together to enjoy all things spooky and creepy.


With Wales now in the middle of a fire breaker lockdown with travel restricted to essential journeys only, we will see less parties and gatherings as we all play our part during this pandemic.


Communities across the country are coming together to adapt the traditional trick or treating journey for children to enjoy. Gone is the traditional knocking on doors and sharing of sweets and chocolates for this year at least. In its place, some communities have got together the exterior of their houses and gardens, and families can take their children on a pumpkin hunt. Has your community done something similar?


The only things that should be flying tomorrow evening are the witches on their broomsticks! So, if you are driving on the roads of Wales tomorrow, please drive within the legal speed limits; and no matter how short or familiar the journey, wear your seatbelt, it could save your life.


The little things can make a big difference to your own safety and the safety of others on our roads. So, this Halloween, remember that driving safely is the trick, getting home is the treat.


Happy Halloween!
