Parental responsibility and youth diversion were the key themes in Limavady PCSP’s Halloween programme this year.

An innovative campaign visual, encouraging parents to take responsibility for the whereabouts of their children during the Halloween period was used in an outdoor advertising campaign during the month of October.

PCSP branded beer mats carrying the same message were also delivered to all public houses and hotels across the Limavady area in the run up to the Halloween period.

On Halloween night, around 180 young people went to Cumber House - outside Claudy - where they took part in a series of Halloween themed events between 7pm and 11pm.

Local community groups in the Limavady borough worked with young people in the weeks leading up to Halloween as part of the programme. Participants from Ballykelly, Drumsurn, Dungiven and Limavady came together for the night.

Limavady PCSP chair Michael Coyle said: “Last year we engaged 120 young people between the hours of 7pm and midnight, so we are pleased to increase our participation numbers further and work with groups right across the borough.

“Feedback from our parental responsibility campaign in the build up to Halloween has also been positive,” he said.
