A pirate-themed Halloween display filled with skeletons, treasure chests and a wooden pirate ship has taken over a front yard.
Husband and wife duo Matthew and Denise Howard from Stanford North near Westenhanger decorate their Stone Street home each year in aid of charity.
Last year they raised over £750 for Leukemia UK with a haunted house themed display and this year funds are being raised for mental health charity Mind, a cause personal to them .
Ms Howard, 53, explained: “We have done an exhibition for the past six years in our village and everyone tells me every year that we should do it for charity.
“We both know people who have committed suicide, so we wanted to do it for Mind.
“It’s a good cause and it needs to be more present.
“It took two mornings to put the exhibit together, because we had to build the pirate ship because it was in pieces.
“I learned this from someone last October. I get my ideas for next year every October, so I already know what I’m doing for next year.
“The kids in the village love it.”
The couple have already raised around £160 via a collection box outside their home and a Go Fund Me page for those wishing to donate online.
The display will continue until November 2.
