The 29-year-old tragically died following a crash on March Road, in Coates, on Monday morning after her car left the road and entered Twenty Foot Drain.

Geri was academy manager of the 20Twenty Academy youth theatres and youth volunteering programs, as well as mentoring apprentices.

Last night members of the arts production company met at March Town Hall to share memories, tears and laughter.

Bouquets of flowers were left at the entrance, with dozens of heartfelt messages pouring in on social media.
