Before COVID-19 entered our world Halloween was something which many of the village children looked forwards to and a number of households in the village have been keen to help them celebrate.

The idea of passing items to our children is not possible this year as we try to reduce the spread of the virus and it is important that social distancing is maintained.

As an alternative to more traditional Halloweens we are hoping that residents and business owners display a pumpkin or decoration so that it can be seen from roads and pavements. Parents can then, if they chose, give their own children a treat.

The children can then still have the excitement of Halloween but safely.

Thank you for your support.
