A memorial event will take place on Tuesday to remember popular mum-of-one Rosie Darbyshire.


Rosie’s friend, Denni Hartley, has arranged the event in tribute to her.

Denni is asking people to bring along lanterns, candles and balloons to Whitmore Place, Moor Nook, at 6pm, to remember her friend.

Rosie, 27, was found in the street in Pope Lane in the early hours of Thursday morning.

She had suffered a brutal attack and tragically died from her injuries.

In a poem to her friend, Denni said:

“A thousands words won’t bring you back, I know because I’ve tried

“And neither will a thousand tears, I know because I’ve cried.”

Floral tributes have been placed at the corner of Village Drive in tribute to Rosie.

A Just Giving page set up to raise money for her funeral has raised more than £5,000 and remains open. The Moor Nook Chippy is also taking collections.
