FERNHILL School has dedicated a new bench in a quiet courtyard in memory of one of its pupils, Richard Donne, who died from a "superbug" in hospital last year.

The bench carries a memorial plaque to the keen sportsman. It was organised by a group of parents headed by Mrs Kathy Goddard. B & Q of Farnborough donated the bench and Bound-stone Engraving of Farnborough gave the plaque.

The school also plans a Richard Donne memorial trophy for a tennis tournament to be held in July.
