ADVICE on dealing with anti-social behaviour in the run-up to Hallowe’en and Bonfire Night has been issued by East Riding Council, including providing a poster that can be dowloaded and displayed by households, which asks trick or treaters not to knock on doors.

Cllr David Elvidge, the council’s portfolio holder for community empowerment, told Beverley FM: “We want residents to make the most of these events. There are, however, a minority of people who use these occasions to take part in anti-social behaviour activities and put other people’s enjoyment at risk.”

He said people can report anti-social behaviour to police by calling 101 (999 in an emergency) or to the council’s ASB team here The poster can be downloaded here:

He also confirmed it was not allowed to set off fireworks between 11pm and 7am except on Bonfire Night, when the curfew is midnight to 7am. 

EAST RIDING Libraries are taking part in the Booktrust Storytime Prize and are looking for library users to get involved and vote for their favourites. The prize, which is in its fourth year, celebrates and promotes the best books for sharing with young children. 

An expert panel chose the short-listed books with insights from librarians and families, and the nominees will now face a public vote from children, families and librarians. Seven East Riding Libraries, including Beverley Library, will be offering storytime sessions for each shortlisted title. More information here
