Mathew Jarvis, 31, of Bracklesham Road has used animations, 3D spiders, strobe lighting and other spooky themed ideas to create a spectacular Halloween display inside and out.

Mathew’s mum Carol Jarvis, 62, beat cancer this year, but his best friend's dad, George Steel, died a month ago aged 62.

George's 10-year struggle with cancer inspired Mathew to raise funds for Cancer Research. 

'Every little helps, even if it's £10 or £1,000,' said Mathew of his hopes to raise funds for Cancer Research.

Decorations will be up for the weekend before being taken down on Sunday.

‘When I started this project, I thought it would be a nightmare,’ said Mathew.

'The wind and the rain were a challenge and overnight bits fell on the floor. I re-did it and the feedback has been really good. I feel great.’

He plans an equally mesmerising Christmas display later in the year. 'It will be bigger and better than last year' and will again be a fundraising idea.

'I've got an 8ft snowman, two big blow-up Santas and animations – one of Santa climbing up a rope and another of a moving reindeer.’

Mathew asks that all donations are made to Cancer Research directly.
