LYDE Green residents are getting into the spirit of Halloween again by signing up to a spooky trail for trick-or-treaters.

The trail was first staged last year, when more than one in every ten households across the development took part.

As the Voice went to print more than 60 homes had already signed up to get involved in the event.

This year’s trail was organised by Lyde Green resident Cate Biggs and her partner, Mark.

For the first time, this year’s trail also includes a “blue pumpkin” route indicating homes where people are prepared to provide alternative, non-food treats for children with allergies and other special needs. The alternative treats can include a small toy, stickers, a pencil, or bubbles.

The Halloween trail was set to take place from 4.30pm until 8.30pm on October 31, with residents set to decorate their houses with pumpkins and themed decorations, such as cobwebs and skulls, in order to let families and trick-or-treaters know that it is OK for them to knock.

The idea is to ensure that any homes not decorated or on the trail map are not bothered unnecessarily during the evening.
