THE family of a young woman who was tragically murdered have raised money for a beautiful wooden treehouse at Black Park in her memory.

Alice Adams, 20, of Iver Heath was fatally stabbed in 2011 with her friend and co-worker Tibor Vass, while working as a receptionist at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel in Heathrow.

A fellow employee was later sentenced to life imprisonment for their murders.

Alice's family set out to raise money to create something that would capture Alice's personality and spirit. They came up with the idea of Alice’s Treehouse at Black Park in Wexham, where Alice used to work as a 'Go Ape' instructor.

Fund raising events over the last four years have included a music show staged by teacher Danny Munster at Chalfont Community College where Alice had studied. There have also been table top sales, a music gig by close family friend Jack Williams, fun runs, sky dives and even an online auction by the band Paramore.

Alice’s mum Ms Sara Adams who runs the local choir, Iver Singers, said: "Alice was incredibly creative. She wrote songs, played the guitar and piano, and often sang with her sisters Caroline, 23, and Daisy Angel 12. Alice was an accomplished artist who loved creating art and fun projects and building treehouses”.

Alice's Auntie, Ms Kathryn Camsey, managed the project alongside Sara. The company Enchanted Creations has built the treehouse under the supervision of its Director Brad Smith. Kristian Lucas has created beautiful carvings for it based on drawings and poems created by Alice herself.

Alice’s Treehouse will be formally opened next Saturday, January 30 at 2pm.

It is hoped Alice's many friends will turn out in force. Her sister Daisy now goes to her old school Chalfont Community College and ran a table top sale only two weeks ago.

Her mum said: "Because of that we were able to add a wishing well to the tree. It will be called Daisy's Wishing Well.”

"The treehouse is not intended as a memorial to Alice but as gift from her - she loved nature and always wanted to share that with other people."
