Our top tips for a safe Halloween:
- Look for a costume with a CE or UKCA mark – this doesn't mean it won't catch light but it has been tested and should burn slower.
- Layer up – wear clothes under costumes to provide a layer of protection between costume and their skin should it catch fire.
- Use battery operated candles inside of our pumpkins/decorations.
- Teach children to Stop, Drop and Roll.
