Caitlin’s family and friends gathered at College House on Friday, 15 July to plant a tree in her memory and to share remembrances of her life. Caitlin died unexpectedly on 5 January aged 21.

Her parents, Carolyn and Gary Waghorn, and younger brother and sister (Dylan and Ren­­ée), travelled from Nelson for the ceremony.

It was a beautifully sunny day as Carolyn, Gary, Dylan and Ren­­ée gently settled the red-purple Magnolia ‘Cleopatra’ into the garden behind the library.

The plaque next to the tree reads:

This tree was planted on the 15th July 2016 in memory of Caitlin Ellen Waghorn (known as KT) 

                                          20th October 1994 - 5th January 2016 aged 21 years.

You’ll live forever in our hearts Caitlin.
