Hello. I’m very pleased to announce that for the first time in years trick or treating is to be tolerated in Beckworth this Halloween night. You may remember that it was banned due to year on year increases of muggings by under 10s on the town’s population. A compromise has been reached whereby youths will be accompanied door to door by armed riot police and not allowed to look, or act, too scary. I trust this will enhance everyone’s enjoyment of all-hallows eve. Yours, PC Cowgrove. Beckworth Police.
