PHOEBE DAVIES: touched the hearts of so many

A MEMORIAL seat is due to be placed on Walmer seafront in memory of Phoebe Davies, the Deal toddler who died a year ago after suffering serious heart problems.

Phoebe won the hearts of people in East Kent who raised £50,000 in just seven weeks of launching the Friends of Phoebe Appeal. The fund helped to pay for pioneering surgery in Canada.

Phoebe recovered but later suddenly became ill and died London's Royal Brompton Hospital on April 27. She would have been two in August.

The memorial bench is to be placed near the Jubilee Mosaic on Walmer Green.

Phoebe's parents, Ruth and Kevin, live in Lydia Road, Deal. The couple also have a son and daughter. Another baby is due on June 28 and it has already been confirmed that it's a boy.
