A MEMORIAL event will be held to mark one year since a Canvey teenager was killed in a road crash.
Ashley Jones, 19, died along with two friends after a crash on the A10, near Hoddesdon, in Hertfordshire, on November 9 last year.
His friends, Harry Ferrand, 17, and Jack Boyton, 17, both from Enfield, in Hertfordshire, were also killed when the Vauxhall Corsa they were in ploughed into the back of a lorry.
A fourth teenager, Liam Bradshaw, 17, who was also a passenger in the car, survived the collision.
The memorial event will be held at Jack’s Cafe, on the Elsinge Estate, in Bullsmoor, Enfield, the cafe his mother, Sarah Boyton, opened in memory of her son in May.
There will be raffles, rides and live music starting from 3pm on Friday, November 8, in honour of the three youngsters.
Mrs Boyton said: “The cafe has been so popular since it opened five months ago. We have even had people visit from Australia and have more than 1,000 followers on Facebook, it’s overwhelming.
“This is going to be massive day and we hope to see a lot of people come along and celebrate the lives of the boys.”
Ashley grew up in Enfield, but later moved to Canvey with his mother Vivian Fegan. He also left behind his grandparents Ray and Kathy Boreham, who also live on Canvey, brother Billy, 17, and sister Naomi, 11.
