The woman who once chained herself to the entrance of Princess Pavilion to protest plans to turn it into a block of flats has been commemorated with a memorial plaque.

Along with a tree planted in the Pavilion's gardens in her memory, the plaque will remember Barbara Boase's efforts to save the much-loved venue.

It is engraved with a fox in memory of the unusual pet she was so fond of and even used to take on car rides with her.

Princess Pavilion was in danger of being sold to developers in 1999 and Barbara along with her husband Barry and friend Gerry Brown started the Friends of Princess Pavilion under the guidance of councillor Geoffrey Evans.

At the unveiling of the plaque today (Friday January 11), Geoffrey Evans said: "I went and saw her quite a bit and we used to have a chat for half an hour, and I miss that because you don't get that so much these days with people."

Her husband Barry said: "She used to enjoy your visits quite a bit."

Barbara sadly passed away in December 2017.
