A one minute silence was held at Corby’s indoor skateboarding venue Adrenaline Alley on Saturday in memory of a teenager from Gretton who died last week.
Jack Thompson, who lived in Gretton but attended Uppingham Community College, was a regular at the Priors Haw Road site.
A letter sent home to students and parents from community college principal Jan Turner said Jack had suffered a heart attack last Sunday, March 8, and had passed away last Thursday, March 12.
In the letter, she added: “We must pull together as a school community and help each other at this sad time.”
On Saturday, friends of Jack held a silence and applause at Adrenaline Alley in Jack’s memory.
