Avoid the dangers of Halloween
HALLOWEEN, the American tradition that continues to grow in Australia, is almost upon us and ahead of tomorrow's trick or treating police have advised parents how to keep their children safe.
Mid North Coast Local Area Command officers have recommended that parents follow these guidelines to ensure the fun on Friday stays safe.
"Trick-or-treat in daylight and stay together in groups, don't enter a stranger's home, even if they invite you, accompany your children when they visit houses and where possible, visit homes of neighbours or families who you're familiar with," police advised.
"Remember not everyone celebrates Halloween so stick to houses with decorations and take extra care around driveways and roads."
