The stall, hosted outside Open Door on Berkhamsted High Street, was a huge success. Over 40 families came to drop off or pick up creepy costumes throughout the event.

The group also shared information about how families can take simple actions to make sure the planet is liveable for our children – from writing to their MP to using second-hand items.

The group encouraged parents to sign the petition and write to their MPs to stop Rosebank, ahead of the shocking announcement this week that the site has been approved by the UK government.

Rosebank is the largest undeveloped oil field in the UK, and this approval is despite warnings that developing it would blow all current climate targets.
