SCHOOLS, community groups, businesses, families and friends all raided their wardrobes for something pink on Wednesday, in honour of seven-year-old April Reeves.

April died after being involved in a collision with a car while cycling alongside the A371 with her mother and brother on May 28.

Some decided to campaign for a reduced speed limit and new road safety measures, and hundreds marched along the A371 in Locking with this in mind. For more information on this story, pick up a copy of the paper.

But even those who did not join the walk still joined in the tribute, as hundreds of other people across Locking, Weston and further afield wore pink in memory of April.

Swathes of pink appeared in schools and places of work, with some dressing up in all-out fancy dress, while others just donned some pink nails or shoes to pay their respects.

Some of you have shared your pictures with us - in fact the support has been so great that there were so pictures we have had to split them into several galleries.

Take a look and see if you can find yourself.
