The woman behind an astonishing Drumchapel Hallowe’en house revealed she does it to say thank you to the community who “saved her mum’s life” over six decades ago.

Sandra Lee Myles styled out the home she shares with Mum Liz to give it a ‘Haunted House on the Corner’ feel for her spooktacular October 31 display.

And she explained she does it as a nod to the Drumchapel people who helped her mum in 1961, when, as a child, she was paralysed from the neck down following a tragic accident.

Speaking exclusively to the Clydebank Post during a visit to the Hallowe’en display, Sandra said: “My mum is the reason we continue doing it.

“She had a serious head injury 62 years ago which paralysed her from the neck down, and the community of Drumchapel came together in their thousands.

“They donated much-needed blood for the blood transfusion which saved her life.

“So, it’s just a very small gesture to say thank you back to the community of Drumchapel for what they did to save my mum’s life.”

Not only did the Drumchapel folk help Liz with blood, but they also put in money and transport to get her back from Stirling’s Killearn Hospital through buses and taxis back to the area.

And Sandra admitted she went bigger than ever this year due to the cancellation of a well-known fireworks display.

She continued: “This is the biggest one yet and the reason we have made it this big is because it's Drumchapel’s 70th birthday this year.

“And it’s just a wee celebration of that.

“But also, because we don’t have our Winterfest to look forward to this year, there wasn’t very much for the kids to look forward to in the community.”

The magnificent show only took Sandra and friends 10 days to put together, although the 48-year-old explained she had been buying decorations since the start of the year.

But she couldn’t believe the response she got from kids and grown-ups across October 30 and 31.

Sandra finished: “On Monday night, there were 250-300 people come through the garden.

“I was only meant to have my garden gate open for two hours but was there till after 9pm.

“Then on Halloween, there were queues going around the garden and we had to start doing one in one out.”
