Memo­rial to Perthshire tod­dler Har­low un­veiled

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Court Reports -

A MEMO­RIAL to a Perthshire tod­dler who died in a road crash has been un­veiled by her par­ents.

Har­low Ed­wards was knocked down and killed by a speed­ing driver just yards from her Coupar An­gus home.

Now a last­ing trib­ute to the two-year-old has been cre­ated at the chil­dren’s play­park close to where she died.

Par­ents Steve and Sara at­tended a ded­i­ca­tion cer­e­mony for the new Larghan Park mon­key puz­zle tree. The cou­ple also wrote a poem, in­scribed on a plaque at the base of the tree.

It reads: “We twin­kle in the sky, many years away. Most are only seen at night, how­ever one is seen in the day.”

The tree is ded­i­cated “in lov­ing mem­ory of a very spe­cial star, Har­low Ed­wards”.

The memo­rial was the idea of lo­cal man John Ket­tles, of Blast De­sign, who or­gan­ises the town’s an­nual fire­works dis­play.

He worked with the Ed­wards fam­ily and Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil to find the right tree and lo­ca­tion.

Com­mu­nity coun­cil chair­woman Wendy McCombes, who led the cer­e­mony, said it was felt a mon­key puz­zle tree would bring joy to fu­ture gen­er­a­tions of young­sters.

“No one will for­get the events of Oc­to­ber 13 2016 and the for­ti­tude and dig­nity shown by the Ed­wards fam­ily from that date,” she added.

The in­te­rior of the build­ing.
