LETTER: Belated thanks for polite trick or treaters

Could I please rather belatedly thank all of the trick or treaters who called by my house on 31 October.

They were, without exception, so polite and delightfully grateful for the treats they received and as such my family thoroughly enjoyed participating in Halloween celebrations with them; my son aged 16 months was quite fascinated with the frequency and appearance of our visitors that night and I was rather pleased to hear one youngster tell his dad ‘that was a good one’ after visiting our house!

Most of the visitors were supervised from a discreet distance by older children or adults, all of whom expressed their thanks too, so to summarise, what a fabulous, fun night we had!

Often when you expect the worst of our young people you see the very best.

I look forward to next Halloween!
