Get active this Halloween by following the trail of spooky posters in your area.


To help get people active this October, we can move has set up the Gloucestershire Halloween trail.


Now it’s getting colder, and the nights are drawing in, it can be difficult to find the time and motivation to get outside and get active but it’s important to keep active as it not only benefits our physical health but our mental health too.


We can move have teamed up with Gloucestershire Libraries to encourage people to get active this autumn by taking part in the Halloween trail. The trail requires people to walk around their local area to find a trail of Halloween themed posters displayed in residents front windows.


To take part in the Halloween trail, you can download one of the thirteen free Halloween poster designs, colour them in then display them in your home’s front window from 24 October – 31 October (Halloween). To be added to the trail map, simply add your street name and postcode via the link once you have downloaded your poster design.


By adding your location to the Halloween trail map, it allows people to follow the trail of spooky posters in your area.


The aim of the trail is to give people something fun and free to do this Halloween and get them active. How many spooky designs can you find?


Tom Beasley, Chief Executive at Active Gloucestershire, supporter of we can move said “It’s difficult this time of year to get active. It’s getting colder, it’s getting dark earlier, and nobody really wants to get outside but we hope the Halloween trail will be a fun, free and interactive way that encourages people of all ages to get active this autumn.”

“Being active has so many benefits for our physical and mental health and what a better way to get active than to get outside with our friends and family and hunt for the spooky posters!”


Cllr Dave Norman, cabinet member for libraries at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “We are delighted to support the ‘we can move’ Halloween trail. This is a great opportunity to get friends and families active together in their local area and something fun to take part in this October half-term.

“I would encourage people to pick up a poster design from your local library, where you can also enjoy some of the planned children’s activities or browse our range of books and items to borrow.”


You can download the posters and access the map here.


Alternatively, you can pick up one of the designs at your local library! Go to the Gloucestershire Libraries website to find your local library.
