PCSOs plan to beat flour and eggs this Halloween

Two South Wales police PCSOs bucked the trend by encouraging the use of flour and eggs by children at a Rhondda School this Halloween.

PCSOs Cath James and Hayley Vranch headed for Tonyrefail Comprehensive School X2 Youth Club on Wednesday, 29th October to give children a crash course in baking and decorating scary cup cakes.

The crafty pair used the lessons as a way of getting the message across to children, that flour and eggs are for cooking, not Halloween pranks.

During the cooking lessons, pupils spoke about their plans for Halloween, and both PCSOs explained the impact that seemingly harmless fun can have, especially on the elderly and vulnerable.

PCSO Hayley Vranch, said: “The children loved it and it showed because they came up with some great sugar craft designs.

“Cupcakes are trendy right now, so lets hope the eggs kept in their fridges head for a bowl, and not somebody’s doorstep.”

As part of Operation Bang – the partnership campaign to tackle anti social behaviour during Halloween – there are many awareness and diversionary activities being arranged across Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil by Community Safety Partnerships.
