Age Action would like to remind people that many older people are afraid of Halloween and are afraid of people calling and making a nuisance of themselves.  And we would like people as they are going around this evening to keep an eye out for any neighbours they think might be vulnerable. And please if you have bangers and fireworks don’t set them off near the homes of older people.
