Trick or treat no thanks
HALLOWEEN is nearly here and West Midlands Police is asking the Sutton Coldfield's youngsters to think about their actions and show consideration for the vulnerable and elderly.

Police are providing elderly and vulnerable residents in Sutton Coldfield with no trick or treat cards which respectfully request that trick or treaters do not knock at your door during Halloween.

The luminous cards can be displayed on front windows and doors, to advise trick or treaters that they are not welcome to knock the door.

Officers are also speaking with young people at schools across the region to remind them that while Halloween is a time to have fun with their friends, there is also a more serious message.

Some residents, particularly the elderly, may feel intimidated by young people knocking on their door at night or playing tricks when it is dark and they are home alone.
