Vigil for Gaia

Gaia Pope, 8 November 2017

7:03am 25th November 2017

The friends and family of Gaia Pope will be holding a vigil in Swanage this afternoon.

The 19 year old's body was found near to the town last weekend. She'd been missing for 11 days.

The community will gather at the Ampitheatre inside Prince Albert Gardens at 3.45pm in time for sunset at 4.10pm.

Family and close friends are invited to share their stories of Gaia and people are being asked to bring candles and jam jars to light up the Ampitheatre.
