Posters to help you participate (or not) in Halloween

THIS Saturday little zombies, ghosts and witches will take to the streets alongside bigger monsters and mummies to celebrate Halloween.

We understand not everybody celebrates this spooktacular night, and some may find a group of young vampires or skeletons on their doorstep very confronting.

To help we have created posters to be displayed on your door or in a prominent position at your home, indicating whether you welcome Trick or Treaters, or don't wish to be disturbed.

We all love a good scare, but not when it comes to the safety of children.

To make sure the night doesn't become a nightmare, Trick or Treaters should:

• Be accompanied by a mother or father monster at all times (or another responsible witch, ghost or vampire);
• Black cats love to slink around, but you should walk, not run, between houses and stick to the footpath rather than the road. Black cats don't want to be seen, and for good reason, but if you wear black, it will reduce your visibility to passing motorists;
• Never enter a stranger's house, even if they have invited you in after knocking on their door; and
• Consider joining your friends on your neighbourhood adventure - there is safety in numbers.
