Remembering Ellie

Firstly, to pass on message from Ellie Thornton’s parents:

At 11:00am on Friday 9 June a small remembrance service was held for Ellie at St. Mary’s parish church, Thakeham.


Ellie has now been placed to rest in a beautiful location in the temperance garden behind the church overlooking the glorious countryside that she loved so much, her plot is currently marked by a small cross, before a stone is laid in the next few months.


People are welcome to visit pay their respects if they would like to.



Secondly, a reminder for your diaries that there will be another opportunity for the community to remember Ellie at 4pm on Monday 10th July, in High Bar Lane playground, when there will be an event to dedicate a memorial bench and tree planting.  All welcome.
