HALLOWEEN – A MESSAGE FROM DEVON AND CORNWALL POLICE

Sorry… No trick, or treat, meet or greet this Halloween

Due to the ‘rule of six’ which applies indoors and outdoors, gatherings that exceed this limit, such as traditional Halloween parties and social events, cannot take place this year.  

Police and partner agencies are encouraging trick-or-treaters to stay at home to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

Some people, particularly if elderly or vulnerable, might be distressed by strangers knocking at their door during the evening – even more so during a global pandemic.

 Halloween at home – alternatives to trick or treating for families and young children

  • Organise a Halloween themed scavenger hunt around your house or garden.
  • Arrange a virtual fancy dress party online and invite your friends and family.
  • Out-boo your neighbours and have a window decorating competition.
  • Get creative in the kitchen. Go online to find the recipes for spooky snacks.
  • Decorate your living room and create your own scary cinema.
  • Play Halloween inspired games with your friends and family.
  • Try safely carving a pumpkin and share images with your friends.

GWR – Upcoming weekend rail improvement works

Network Rail Wales & Western are continuing their programme of rail improvement works keeping the railway safe and reliable.

The planned engineering work will protect the route between Reading and Taunton for years ahead and ensure the safety of train services between London and the South West. As a result of these works, we will be unable to operate some trains as normal on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 November.

More information can be found on our website at www.GWR.com/Wessex, and the key details are listed below.

As we get closer to the work taking place, we will be letting customers know about the temporary changes through traditional and social media, and through information on trains and at stations. Any help you can give us with that will be great, and if you do have any further questions, or pick up any concerns or queries, please feel free to pass them on.

Best wishes

Jane Jones
Head of Public Affairs | GWR

  • Most long-distance services running between London and the South West will be diverted via Bristol between Reading and Taunton on these dates, adding up to 15 minutes to the journey time.
  • However, some stopping services via Newbury will still operate – terminating at Westbury on the Saturday or at Frome on the Sunday with replacement buses running to Castle Cary and Taunton.
  • Trains from Bristol to Weymouth will terminate at Frome on both dates with replacement buses to Bruton and Castle Cary where trains then continue to Weymouth.
