A lasting tribute to Harry Parker has been unveiled at his beloved football club on the year anniversary of his death.

Surrounded by friends and family at a fun day event organised to celebrate the life of the 14-year-old a year after he was killed in a suspected hit-and-run, parents Adam and Kelly Parker held a ribbon cutting for 'Harry's Hut'. 

One of the youngster's favourite places was the home of Ferndale Rodbourne Youth FC, the football team he played for, and a hut building next to the football pitches off Southbrook Street. 

That hut has now been named in honour of Harry, with a new sign in the shape of a football shirt, alongside his player number 4. 

Before Kelly took off the cover for the sign, Adam gave a speech about how much the moment meant. 

"As you know Harry loved his football, unfortunately, his team was Man United after he went through a few of them, but the one team he did have really close to his heart was Ferndale, he loved his team, he loved his players, he loved spending time down here.

"Ferndale has been really supportive, even before the reason why we're all here happened last year. they've been very supportive to all of us.

"We've been having family meetings here to arrange today, and the club said they were more than willing to rename this as Harry's Hut which I think is a long-lasting memory for Harry and for what the club meant to him."

The unveiling took part in a wider fun day event that lasted from 2pm until 5pm on the anniversary of Harry's death with the aim to raise money for the road safety campaign the family had started - Harry's Get Home Safely.

Friends, family, businesses and complete strangers gave their time to help put the event together, and there were road safety demonstrations, a bouncy castle, stalls and a big raffle consisting of hundreds of donations from local firms who wanted to help support. 

Harry's aunty Jai Plumb was a driving force behind the event and raffle and she said she couldn't believe the response.

"Everyone wanted to do their bit again, I was so surprised at the number of people who still wanted to help, absolutely overwhelmed, flabbergasted. 

"There are no words to convey how grateful we are."

Harry's grandmother, Ann Parker-Griffiths, who manned a stall at the event selling stickers and other various things, added: "The support from everyone has been overwhelming.

Even from people we don't know, complete strangers who didn't know us or Harry who have gone out of their way to do something."

For Adam and Kelly, the day was a difficult one that they had been dreading. 

"The one-year anniversary was a very hard day for all of us and one we were not looking forward to," they said.

"That's why we decided to put on the fun day in Harry's name and why it means so much to us that friends, family and strangers have come to spend the day with us to celebrate the life of our son.

"The support we've had throughout this year has been incredible and we'll always be grateful for that.

"Thank you to everyone who came and helped raise money for Harry's Get Home Safely campaign."
