With leaves falling from the trees and the nights drawing in, the Halloween countdown has begun.
Whether you plan to take the kids out trick-or-treating or will be transforming your home into a spooky surprise, Nextdoor’s Trick-or-Treat Map has you covered.
The Trick-or-Treat Map lets you share your Halloween plans with your neighbours and so is a handy resource for parents. Use the map to plan the best route to go trick-or-treating in the neighbourhood to find the best streets for treats and to ensure a fun and safe night is had by all. It’s also a great tool to know which neighbours would rather not be disturbed, allowing you to be aware of who you scare on Halloween night.
It’s easy to get involved, just follow our steps below:
- If you’re already a Nextdoor member, simply sign into your account. If you are not yet a member, you can sign up and verify your address to ensure you don’t miss out on the fun: nextdoor.co.uk/treat.
- Once signed in, visit your neighbourhood map. On the website you’ll find the Trick-or-Treat map in the right hand corner or on the app hit the more icon in the right hand corner and then the sweet icon titled Treat Map.
- You will be given the choice to add a sweet on top of your home (or a haunted house, for those who are going the whole hog!). For neighbours who live or plan to visit a multi-tenant building, just click on the parcel to see the details of who will be participating in that building.
- Halloween is definitely more fun with all your neighbours and friends involved, so encourage them to check out the map and let the neighbourhood know whether they will be handing out sweets.
So grab your fangs, dust off your broomstick – and let’s make this Halloween the sweetest yet! Because let’s be honest, no matter what costumes you wear, when the Halloween treats comes out, everyone is a goblin! Get it?! Gobbling?!
Neighbourhood Watch have created a sticker that can also be displayed in your window if you’d rather not be disturbed on Halloween. Download it here.
