Known to be the best halloween house in the area, this Kirkby family are bringing back their amazing display of spooky decorations this weekend.

Mum of four Kirsty Marriott of Southwell Lane, Kirkby, said last year the family were utterly amazed at how many people came to see the halloween display in their front garden, that this year they are upping the ante.

Dad Rob Haynes is said to be building zombies for the front-garden display, this year in aid of Iyra's fund.

She said: "It was our first year at this house and we thought we'd do a little display - e had no idea how huge it would be and how many would come and look at it.

"We had people queuing down the street, we ran out of sweets and had to buy more - it was amazing.

"People clearly liked it and we had children saying thank you because nobody else was doing things like this. People were really polite.

"So we want to do it again this year, and we're expecting a lot of people so we going to up our game.

The family became local celebrities with their display last year. Pictured are Rob Haynes, Kirsty Marriott and children Brayden, 11, Bradley, 8, Olly, 6, Lexi, 4.

"We've ordered dry ice and we're hoping it'll be really special and really spooky."

The mum is putting money into new decorations while her partner Rob Rob Haynes, 27, oriental has been building figures for the display.

"He's just a big kid and he loves to build zombies and stuff - it's just been manic," added Kirsty.

This year, the family are also hoping that their halloween attraction can be used to help raise funds for an important local cause. They're supporting Iyra's fund - hoping to help young Iyra Austin who has cerebral palsy and who's family are trying to raise £50,000 for a much-needed operation.

They hope the effects this year will impress hundreds of visitors.
