An event to remember the life of Ava-May Littleboy on Gorleston beach has been modified.

It had been planned to release pink balloons on Sunday at 6pm by the area the three-year-old was thrown from an inflatable trampoline last Sunday. She later died in hospital.

Organiser Emma Wright, a mother-of-two from Bradwell, has now changed the tribute plans, which are supported by Gorleston-based Celebration Station.

After discussions with Ava-May’s family, people are now being asked to bring sweet pea and forget me not seeds which will then be placed in pink balloons to be inflated.

People are then asked to burst the biodegradable balloons in their gardens and plant the sends in her memory.

People will also be asked to blow bubbles as a tribute to Ava-May, from Somersham, near Ipswich and whose favourite colour was pink.

People are also encouraged to wear pink at Sunday’s event.
