A bench will be placed in Ardsley as a memorial to Harry who died in August last year.

A memorial bench to remember an East Ardsley schoolboy who died in an accident last year will be unveiled next week by councillors and youth workers to make sure that he is never forgotten.

Harry Whitlam, 11, died on August 10 after being hit by a tractor at Swithens Farm in Rothwell.

In his memory the Cluster of Ardsley and Tingley Schools and Services, youth services and councillors Jack Dunn, Lisa Mulherin and Karen Renshaw, have together bought a memorial bench, which will be situated at Ardsley Rec - a favourite play area for Harry and his friends.

The bench will be unveiled during a Breeze event, which will be held on Ardsley Rec in Main Street, East Ardsley, on Tuesday August 12.

Activities will take place on the rec, 1pm-5pm.
