POLICE and council agencies across Wrexham are keen to see everyone enjoy a safe and fun Bonfire Night and Hallowe’en.
They have made a series of Hallowe’en posters available to shopkeepers, householders and children that either encourage or deter trick-or-treaters.
Retailers have agreed to support the campaign by not selling eggs and flour to young people this month.
Police officers will visit schools to remind pupils trick-or-treating can have serious consequences as throwing eggs and flour at houses can cause criminal damage and may result in them being arrested.
The Community Safety Partnership is also running a campaign to encourage the safe use of fireworks.
Wrexham council’s Trading Standards department will be working on a number of projects to encourage the safe selling of fireworks.
Janet Growcott, community safety manager, said: “We are confident these campaigns will promote positive messages and demonstrate to perpetrators of crime and anti-social behaviour that their behaviour will not be tolerated.”
