A WINCHESTER woman has caused delight in her neighbourhood by decorating her house for Halloween.

Lisa Cridland, 39, said that she started the tradition of putting up spooky decorations outside her home on Thurmond Crescent approximately four years ago and that she has no plans to stop any time soon.

The mum of five told the Chronicle: “Every year I make it bigger. Last year I got a lot of people who were interested and asked ‘Oh, will you do it every year’, and I can’t see why not.

Lisa said that her favourite decoration is an array of “dead bodies” that she has outside the front of her house.

She continued: “I’ve got more ideas for next year; people keep sending me ideas. I’ve got quite a large back garden, so I’m thinking next year of expanding out the back and maybe doing a maze or something.

“I just hope to inspire other people to get on board and celebrate Halloween a bit more. I didn’t really expect for it to go this big; I’m surprised that people are this interested in my decorations.”
