She said: “With your help by the end of the weekend the foundation of the memorial garden will be created.

“In the summer the garden will be open to the public on a daily basis for the community to enjoy.”

This comes as Sue set up a JustGiving page to raise £2,000 to commission three benches and a memorial plaque for the garden. Click here to donate, and contact sue@rustingtonpastandpresent.co.uk for more information.
