30 December: We scattered some of Louise’s ashes down the Swiss Wall, one of the steepest runs in Champery and one of Louise’s favourites. A shaky video is at the bottom of the movies page. I have also created a new page with photos of Louise’s bench and of the memorial in Kensington Gardens.
Thank you to everyone for meeting up by the bench and on Primrose Hill on Louise’s birthday. Some photos of the evening are on the photos page. There is also a short video of the chaos on Primrose Hill on the movies page.
We found a link to many of Louise’s photos and creations. You can link to it click here . You can see the video of the memorial with all of the performances and our family tributes to Louise together with the many memories and tributes here . Many thanks to everyone who made the memorial such a great success. Vicky’s Diary of the day is on the Diary section and your tributes under Tributes. We showed lots of pictures of Louise as a child and growing up at the Memorial and I have loaded many of these into a new gallery on the photos page. Zia, Dot and Zac also took lots of photos at the memorial which are loaded under the Send Off tab.
Vicky’s latest TV appearance was on BBC Breakfast on 21 July. You can watch this on our TV and Radio page here along with an interview by Gabby Logan on “The Wright Stuff Extra” and an appearance on Channel 5 News. Vicky has also been interviewed by both Woman’s Hour and Radio 5 Live. We have loaded both interviews onto the newly named Press and Radio section of the site. BBC London have also run a story which you can find here.
In early July we send off some Magic Lanterns for Louise while up at Binstock in Norfolk. A video is at the bottom of the Movies page along with a great clip that Tim Arnold sent us of Louise on stage with him at Koko back in 2004.
We have started putting some of Louise’s work up on the site – art projects, writing and photos. The first items are under the “Works” tab.
Three cheers to the FHS girls who have got clearance from Camden to place a memorial bench for Lou outside the Roundhouse. This will be opposite the Marathon Kebab House – scene of much jolity, parties and late night impromtu performances.
