The daughter of Julia James has announced plans for a candlelit vigil, as the investigation into her killing continues.
Julia, 53, a PCSO who lived in the village of Snowdown, near Dover, was found dead in Akholt Wood last Tuesday (April 27).
While police have launched a murder investigation, no arrests have yet been made or any suspects identified.
Julia's daughter, Bethan Coles, posted a message on Facebook last night (May 3), discussing plans for a vigil that would still keep police resources focused on the investigation.

She said: "A number of people have asked about holding a vigil for Mum, and whilst I am so grateful for people wanting to remember her, I am very conscious that any gathering would need to be policed (if it was even allowed).
"I’ve discussed this with my family and we are in agreement that we would prefer all police resources to be concentrating on the investigation as there is so much work to be done."
Instead, Bethan and the family are encouraging those wishing to pay tribute to light a candle on their doorsteps at 7pm tonight (May 4).
She continued: "I’ve been thinking perhaps we could ask those who wish to remember Mum to light a candle for her and leave it on their doorstep.
"This would be a beautiful nod to Mum in a way that doesn’t intrude on the Police investigation
"Tomorrow marks a week since we lost Mum.
"At 7pm I will light a candle for her."
