Friends, family and community leaders have now joined together to fund a memorial bench in Arbourthorne – the place where she lived before the tragedy.

The bench and a plaque honouring Kelly has been sited at a children's play area off East Bank Road and was officially unveiled on Thursday last week.

The Star understands this was the third bench sited in Kelly’s honour.

Another one was unveiled in Waverley about a year ago and more recently one was installed close to Kelly’s graveside in City Road Cemetery.

Winnie Smith, aged 79, a member of Arbourthorne Tenants And Residents' Association – which organised for the bench to be sited – described Kelly as “a lovely person.”
