It was 25 years ago today that a well loved and widely known resident of Stonehaven lost her life in a tragic accident. Jackie Poole was the manageress in the local supermarket and whilst at work she was involved in a fatal accident, whereby she was crushed by a forklift truck and lost her life. It was a sad loss to the community and her ashes were scattered on the hill leading to the war memorial in Stonehaven and a memorial bench was placed on the spot. Last year according to Aberdeenshire council the bench fell into such a state of disrepair it was removed, despite there being a lifelong contract for its upkeep. The council advised that a new bench and plaque could be purchased and placed back in the spot. To mark the 25th anniversary the council were contacted to replace the bench but they then refused to put another bench anywhere at the memorial due to overcrowding of benches and complaints regarding the issue. The memorial bench of Jackie Poole was placed on the hill at a time when no other benches were at the monument and it was a spot where the beautiful town of Stonehaven can be admired...a place that she loved dearly. Please sign my petition to get Aberdeenshire council to change their decision
