FRIENDS and family of Martin Holder will tomorrow light a memorial lantern in his memory.

A group of those mourning the 16-year-old, who was found dead in his Whaddon home, will meet at The Rising Sun at 6.30pm.

They will then walk up Cleeve Hill to light the beacon for Martin.

The teenager, who had gone to Cleeve School, then left in the summer to study forensic computing at Gloucestershire College.

Martin had hoped to one day work at GCHQ.

He was well-known in Prestbury as a paperboy for the Echo for two years.

His funeral will be held at 2.30pm on Monday, November 26 at Cheltenham Crematorium. There is no set dress code.

There will be family flowers only, but funeral directors Mason and Stokes will be accepting donations towards Martin's memorial, although there are no set plans for this yet.

Afterwards all are welcome at The King's Arms pub in Prestbury, where loved ones will share memories of the young man.
