Car crash vic­tim Ali­son died on way to fi­nal fit­ting for brides­maid dress

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A HORSE-lover who died in a car crash was on the way to her fi­nal fit­ting for a brides­maid dress for her sis­ter’s wed­ding.

Ali­son Kelly, 29, was killed on Tues­day of last week fol­low­ing a col­li­sion on the A355 Amer­sham Road, Coleshill, near Amer­sham.

She was on the way to Portsmouth for the fi­nal fit­ting of her dress for her sis­ter’s wed­ding, which is due to take place on Satur­day.

Miss Kelly died at the scene. A man driv­ing a sec­ond ve­hi­cle was in­jured and was air­lifted to the Royal Lon­don Hos­pi­tal.

The driver of the third ve­hi­cle was not in­jured.

This week, her heart­bro­ken fam­ily de­scribed Ms Kelly as a car­ing an­i­mal lover.

In a state­ment, they said: “Ally was a lov­ing, car­ing young lady who lived for her horses and dogs. Orig­i­nally from Portsmouth, she was train­ing for her BHS rid­ing in­struc­tor ex­ams at an event yard near Amer­sham, where she was very happy and where she met her lovely boyfriend.

“She leaves be­hind her par­ents, older sis­ter and younger brother who all miss her ter­ri­bly and are dev­as­tated by this tragedy.”

Miss Kelly had been work­ing at Shard­e­loes Eques­trian Cen­tre, in Amer­sham, since Fe­bru­ary.

Eques­trian cen­tre man­ager Gemma Porter-Rawl­ings said: “She was very pop­u­lar with the staff, chil­dren and liv­er­ies.

“She loved the horses, she was ded­i­cated, worked hard and was very loyal.

“She was one of those peo­ple who was full of life and fun, end­lessly pos­i­tive – she was al­ways able to see the pos­i­tive in ev­ery­one and she was cheer­ful. She en­joyed danc­ing and go­ing out with the girls.

“It was a huge shock to ev­ery­one here. We are all dev­as­tated – it has left a huge hole in the team.

“She was a small per­son but she has left a size­able, no­tice­able hole. Many of the staff were very close to her, we are like a fam­ily here as a lot of us live on site.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with her fam­ily and friends. It is a tragic loss.”
