Local MP Maggie Throup has taken delivery of her 2016 Halloween Safety Cards. The popular window cards will again be distributed across Erewash for local residents to pick up and display this Halloween.
Speaking about the campaign Maggie said:
“I am delighted to be able to offer my Halloween Safety Cards again this year and I have already been contacted by a number of local residents enquiring how they can get hold of one.
“In recent years Halloween has become a big event in the UK, with more and more families taking part in trick or treating. This can be a great deal of fun, but for some, especially those who are elderly or vulnerable, it can be a really distressing time of year.
“Therefore these Safety Cards, which politely ask trick or treaters not to call, are a simple but effective way of giving Erewash residents the choice of whether they want to take part or not.”
Maggie and her team will be out and about in both Ilkeston and Long Eaton Market Places over the coming weeks handing out the Halloween Safety Card. The cards will also be available in local shops for residents to collect and a printable version can now be downloaded from Maggie’s website www.maggiethroup.com.
