​Young teenager, Josh Boothman, age 13, tragically died on 24th September after falling in the River Erewash in Stapleford, Nottingham. 

Josh was absolutely mad about motorbikes and was always dropping in to the local bike shops just so he could sit on one, and ask questions about them, his parents always knew where he would be. His older brother Luke is a new biker and Josh would constantly ask if he could help clean his bike.

Luke is planning to ride to his brother’s funeral, their parents, Mark and Gwen, have requested a few bikers to support Luke and escort Josh on his final journey.

Funeral will take place Friday 21st October, 16:15 at Bramcote Crematorium

Coventry Lane, Beeston, Bramcote NG9 3GJ

The cortege will set out at 15:45 – 16:00 from Horace Avenue in Stapleford, NG9 8FR

    What a truly poignant occasion. The community out in force, soooo many bikes following the procession. 118 mile trip to join the cavalcade, RIP Josh, such a sad loss, but a terrific send off and hopefully a good memory of a truly sad day. Condolences to the family.
