Popular play centre pays tribute to 'beautiful' colleague, 17, killed in A34 crash

More tributes have been paid to a 17-year-old student who died in an A34 crash. Georgia Ogden lost her fight for life in hospital after the car she was travelling in was in collision with a lorry. A shrine in the Congleton High School student’s memory has been created near the crash scene on Newcastle Road, in Astbury.

Now staff at Castaway Play – which is in the grounds of Congleton Garden Centre – have paid tribute to the ‘baby of our team’.

Floral tributes by the A34 in memory of Georgia Ogden

In a Facebook post, they said: “Georgia was known for her beautiful smile, infectious laugh and randomly breaking out in to song and dance. She was loved by us all and it has truly rocked us. “It is said that only the good die young and for Georgia this is true.

Goodbyes hurt the most because your life story was not finished and you had so much more left to do. “You will live on in the hearts of the people you have left behind. We will miss you.”
