DANCE: So the village can celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee next June, Newton Poppleford has formed a special fundraising committee.

Tomorrow, Saturday, it holds a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Dance at Newton Poppleford Pavilion, starting at 7.30pm. Tickets are still available, priced �10, to include a buffet supper. Bring your own drinks and dance to the sounds of Stuart Hughes.

David Zirker said: “The music will be great, the food delicious and the atmosphere enchanting.”
