Alert message sent 26/10/2020 13:34:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert


We have some guidance and ideas for Halloween this year.

•We are strongly advising that families do not go trick or treating.
•Due to the rule of six, which applies both indoors and outdoors, gatherings exceeding that limit such as traditional Halloween parties and social events cannot take place this year.
•Halloween at home! Halloween isn't cancelled there are plenty of other spooky ways that families and young people can celebrate safely and have fun at home this year.
•Let's all work together to prevent the spread of coronavirus and keep infection rates low across the region.

As part of the campaign we are promoting some fun ways people can have Halloween at home:

Halloween at home – alternatives to trick or treating for families and young children
•Organise a Halloween themed scavenger hunt around your house or garden.
•Arrange a virtual fancy dress party online and invite your friends and family.
•Out-boo your neighbours and have a window decorating competition.
•Get creative in the kitchen. Go online to find some recipes for spooky snacks.
•Decorate your living room and create your own scary cinema.
•Play Halloween inspired games with your friends and family.
•Try safely carving a pumpkin and share images with your friends.

Five eerie ideas for older children and adults to party at home
•Virtual fancy dress party
Arrange a party online via Skype or Zoom and invite your friends and family. Nominate a DJ to put together some terrifying tunes or put together a Halloween play list and see who has the scariest moves.
•Out-boo your neighbours with a wicked window decorating competition.
Invite your neighbours, friends or family to see who can create the spookiest window.
•Virtual horror quiz
Ask everyone to write ten questions each and read out in their spookiest voice. Turn off the lights and use a torch to set the scene. Throw in a music round of guess the horror movie theme tune. Extra points for the best fancy dress!
•Create your own scary cinema
Decorate your living room, dig out some truly terrifying classics and enjoy a scary movie marathon.

Have a Covid safe Halloween.
