Jenna died in 2005 from meningitis, she was 16, i wondered why the memorial is located there also!!

I don't know the story - I was hoping someone would tell us. We'll be having a closer look at the memorial tomorrow.

apparently she used to hang out round there with her friends?

Hi, I knew Jenna, we were in the same year at Standish High. A big group of us would hang around there a lot, at the "benches". That's why the memorial is there : )
