THIS year's Halloween attraction on the Racecourse Estate in Northolt is billed as being bigger, better and scarier than ever.

Lisa and Jason Cole, of Kempton Avenue, who have a family of 14 children, have been dressing up their house since 2020, and this year will be donating to Meadow House Hospice. It’s a tribute to Jason’s late mother, Mal.

An avid Halloween enthusiast, she battled lymphoma cancer for six years before her death in July this year at 69.

“Even though she was sick she used to come here on Halloween and enjoy seeing the excitement on people’s faces. That got her through a couple of those years,” Jason said.

He has been busy building the Haunted House since the end of August, along with an additional Witch's Hut, where the Candy Witch will be found selling candy floss and light-up bangles.

There will be eight new haunting characters in the display, which features spectacular animatronics, elaborate mazes, illusions and surprises hidden around every corner!

To enter the haunted house, guests are encouraged to donate on entry. Two people are allowed in at any one given time, to add to the enjomenty. 

Guests are asked not to touch props or use flashlights, and anyone suffering from heart problems may want to stay outside.

The big attraction will open on October 31 from 5pm.
