What's on around Halloween, Mischief Night and Bonfire night?

We are fast approaching the time of year when anti-social behaviour can become particularly problematic, I talk of course of Mischief night, Halloween and Bonfire Night. In Kensington and Fairfield the Youth Sub Group has put together a really good programme of events to ensure that there is plenty of alternative and diversionary activities that will be much more enjoyable than hanging around setting fire to things and playing with fireworks. All sorts of partners, community organisations and agencies have come together and this is their list of good stuff. Contact me if you want to know more about how to get involved, to bring your kids, or if you have any events you want to advertise and I will put you in touch with the right people.

I know it is not in your area, but you forgot to mention the lantern parade (which you advertised the making of on your blog) in Sefton Park on Halloween 31st October.

Thanks Les, you make a good point. Of course there is a wonderful lantern parade on October 31st in Sefton Park for anyone who wants to travel a few miles along Tunnel Road and Lodge Lane. I am sure that some of the people who have made lanterns locally will be going, I expect they will have fireworks on November 5th - although we like to encourage people to stay in Newsham Park and attend ours instead!
