Stay safe this Halloween and Bonfire Night

Thames Valley Police are keen to keep everyone safe this Halloween and Bonfire/Fireworks night and its Neighbourhood Team will be carrying out patrols in the evenings to make sure people who are trick or treating or enjoying the fireworks are doing so in a friendly manner and not causing a nuisance.

Thames Valley Police will not tolerate Anti-social Behaviour (ASB) at any time of the year. If you have any information regarding ASB in your neighbourhood, please report it at, call the non-emergency number 101, or in an emergency, dial 999. 

They have issued some posters which contain advice on how to stay safe and/or avoid being disturbed during the Halloween and bonfire celebrations. 

If you would like to use them, please click each image to download a PDF version.

Recycle your pumpkin

Wokingham Borough Council’s food waste recycling service means you can put all the insides of your pumpkin straight into your food waste caddy.

If your pumpkin is too big, chop it up first. Alternatively, sit it next to your bin on your collection day next and the crew will take it away for it to be turned into fertiliser. If you have any issues, please contact Wokingham Borough Council directly.

Alternatively, why not eat your pumpkin!

Re3 Recycling have issued a poster promoting ways in which to eat your pumpkin.

We hope you have a Happy Halloween and bonfire/fireworks celebrations.
