Creep safe this Halloween!

This Halloween and Bonfire Night will be a little different this year for families across Northamptonshire as we come to terms with celebrating the season alongside Covid-19 restrictions.

We want to discourage people from having bonfires and fireworks at home, but we know that some may still do this, so this edition shares some of the main tips for trying to keep as safe as possible.

How to have FUN… without trick or treating:

If you visit the Halloween page on www.northantsfire.gov.uk

you will find a pumpkin image that can be printed for colouring in. We are encouraging people to stick these in windows, or place pumpkins (with artificial candles) so they can be seen. Families can take on a pumpkin spotting challenge in which parents/carers award treats to their own children when they find a house with a pumpkin or pumpkin picture in the window.
