Dancing event to relieve lockdown boredom

Residents in one street in Newton Abbot will tonight all be dancing in the street - well, outside their respective houses.

It was an idea by Forde Close residents Josh Neary and Jess Flood Page who wanted to bring people together.

Josh was inspired by a video of a similar idea in the North West of England, saying he hoped it would 'lift spirits' and 'strengthen bonds'.

Jess said: "It's been great for getting to know people on the street that we've never spoken to before at a time when life is much less hectic.

"It's given us a chance to connect.

"We've got a Facebook page and a group chat and we've had a positive response already.

"We're going to post notes through people's doors who we've not spoken to yet.

"We're going to have loud music, cheesy songs and some party dances.

"It just gives us a moment to be silly and have some fun - and forget about what's going on.!
