British Family Wants to Give Back to Katy
The Oxley family has called Katy their home away from England for almost 5 years. This year they turned their Cinco Ranch garage into a haunted house.
“We are British expats, and everyone has been so welcoming towards us,” says Natasha Oxley. “We wanted to give something back to the community.” She says that going all out on the holidays helps to fill the gap when they are not near family.

Their daughters, ages 1, 3, and 4 all helped in the planning. Oxley says that they even added their handprints to certain areas.

“My husband and I have always loved Halloween,” says Oxley. “He will do anything to make his girls happy and when my oldest asked for a haunted house, they got a haunted house.”
The Oxleys hope that their fun haunted house will be enjoyed by the community.
Haunted House is Free, Open to the Public
“After a difficult couple of years for most of us we decided to open it up to our community for free,” says Oxley.
