Halloween - Saturday 31st October 2020.
Halloween will be a bit different this year.
Children probably won't be knocking on doors this year (well mine won't). If villagers want to put pumpkins out or a Halloween picture in your window, the children can spot them on a walk around the village on Saturday and parents can give their child sweets etc everytime they spot one.
We want to keep everyone safe and minimise contact so if we just go on a hunt looking for pumpkins and halloween pictures we won't be touching people's gates, doors etc or exchanging sweets from a communal bowl.
The Halloween hunt/walk through the village can still be fun.
The children can wear fancy dress and so many will have their faces covered. Adults accompanying, might wear a mask to add to the Halloween atmosphere.
To keep everyone safe we need to keep to our family groups of up to 6 and to social distance as we walk around the village.
Jon and Beatrice will be creating a spooktacular Halloween scene outside theirs. (They won't be handing out sweets.)
I'm going to print off some pumpkin pictures and laminate them and will tie them up the fairy glen for a Halloween trail some time early this week. How many pumpkins can you spot along the walk? I was inspired by Julie Wilkinson's Teddy bear trail that many of us enjoyed in lockdown. I'll let you know when they are up. 🎃
