Additional Info: Why not give your pumpkin creation a name?

Pumpkin Walk

Given the new government restrictions, the health, wellbeing and safety of our community members is paramount. We recommend trick or treat is not advisable to take sweets and come into contact with people outside of your ‘bubble’. However, there are suggestions within the community for children to go on a ‘pumpkin walk’ with an appropriate adult. When you see a pumpkin in a window, your accompanying adult gives you a treat – this avoids any cross-contamination. Please remember to socially distance at all times.

Please note: this is a suggestion as an alternative to trick or treating and should be undertaken at your discretion.
