Memorial Garden Opened For Jade Clark
A garden planted in memory of Ringwood Young Firefighter Jade Clark was officially opened on Sunday June 2nd at 2pm.
Jade was killed in a road traffic accident while riding her moped on the A31 near Ringwood in February.
The 16-year-old was a member of the Young Firefighters Association (YFA) at Ringwood fire station.
In memory of Jade, Jade's YFA colleagues at Ringwood, along with instructors, have created a garden at the front of the station.
The June 2nd date was chosen for the opening as it would have been Jade's 17th birthday.
The garden was officially opened by Spencer McCarthy, the chairman of Churchill Retirement Living, the firm that put up a reward for information during the hunt for the vehicle that collided with Jade's moped.
Members of Jade's family were present for the opening of the garden.
The garden has been created by the Ringwood YFA members, with the support of Stewarts Garden Centre in Christchurch who have helped with the supply of plants and a water feature.
The 79-year-old man suffered a serious head injury in the Cranmer Road car park in Winton.
