Pandemic idea for trick or treaters gains support in local groups
A post advocating a different way of trick or treating in order to keep everyone safe during the pandemic has been circulating on local social media group and has been gaining support.

The post, which is a screenshot of something that appears to have originated outside of the South Hams, suggests people paint, draw, create pumpkins to put in the windows of their houses. Then, when Halloween comes around, instead of coming to people's houses, they go on a 'pumpkin hunt' with their grown ups. For every pumpkin in a window spotted, the grown ups can give them a sweet.

Not only would this eliminate the problem of social distancing, but it would also be possible to be done at any point through Halloween week and half term, meaning less pressure on one night.
When it was posted in local groups, it has received mainly positive responses. Hopefully the young ones won't miss out on too much Halloween fun because of the pandemic, and it goes to show people thinking outside of the box to make life run as smoothly and normally as possible.

If it takes off I'll get practising my pumpkin drawing skills.
