Closing roads for parties
PEOPLE across South Devon have the opportunity to take to the streets to celebrate the Queen's diamond jubilee.
Devon County Council is offering a free application service — the same that was used last year so people could celebrate the wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton.
Residents can hold street parties to commemorate the diamond jubilee over the extended bank holiday weekend of June 2 to 5.
Anyone planning a street party can apply to the council for a temporary Traffic Regulation Order to close a minor road, free of charge.

Dance teachers getting together
PLANS are underway for a second dance teacher conference run by an established Newton Abbot business.
International Dance Supplies, of Brunel Industrial Estate, is organising its second conference and is promising something even more exciting for dance teachers.
The team has also enlisted the talents of Katie Love from the UK TV series So You Think You Can Dance.
Guests will include Lizzie Gough, Graeme Henderson, Steve Sirico and Angie D'Valda Sirico.
Dame Monica Mason, Royal Ballet director, will conduct a coaching session.
This year's conference will be held at The Royal Ballet School, Covent Garden, between August 19 and 22.
The four days are packed with sessions for dance teachers of all genres.
IDS chief executive Anne Walker came up with the idea of the conference several years ago.
