A sizeable crowd attended the unveiling ceremony in Alresford of a memorial bench for community activist Pam Stevens. Several members of her family attended the event on The Avenue, with the bench unveiled by MP Steve Brine.
Both Rotary and The Pigs charities had worked to help finance the bench as did Peter Bridges/Paul Daubeney who admired Pam’s work for the community. The Town council, Rotary and Pigs showed off their good work and New Leaf volunteers gave out literature to promote the fight against climate change.
Robin Atkins, trust chairman, remembered Pam as a hard working and devoted trustee for 12 years. She was actively involved in building up the town trust’s minibus operation and the markets in Broad Street.
Pam also was responsible for building up markets in Broad Street, recruiting stalls for the small but successful Thursday market and extending specialist markets to French, Italian and Brocante market organised by Jackie Edwards twice yearly
Mr Brine said: “Pam was, in so many ways, Mrs Alresford and she put so much into the town to help so many people. She was never bothered who got the credit, she just wanted to get things done and she certainly did this time and time again. Alresford will certainly miss Pam Stevens and so will I.”
