It was just a year ago when Dolly cut the ribbon when Beach Ability launched its beach wheelchair project. The Facebook group had raised more than £13,500 to help the elderly and disabled access the beach

There are now three beach wheelchairs and the group has plans to expand its service. Tess Price, who runs the group, said: " Dolly cut the ribbon a year ago when we launched Beach Ability but unfortunately we lost her to the Big 'C'. When one of our members, Ian Mann, offered to make the bench we thought it would be nice to dedicate it to her.

"John Ison had the plaque made and Homefields at Glenn Park donated the cushion. It's been a real community effort."
