The right moves
I attended the Pure Imagination dance show at the Palace Theatre, Newark, on Sunday staged by Kids & Co.
The effort on the part of the dance teachers and all the children who took part was much appreciated by all who attended. The kids put on a very entertaining show and deserve the highest praise. I hope they will go on to big things through their dedication to their art. Thanks for a lovely evening.

Skills pay off
THIS year’s Remembrance Sunday parade and service at Newark Parish Church took a dramatic turn when former submariner Mr Peter Wilderspin collapsed with a heart attack.
The immediate response and combined efforts of a retained firefighter, his colleagues from the full-time service and trained first aiders meant there was no delay in Mr Wilderspin receiving medical attention. CPR by retained firefighter Dennis Rhule and the use of a defibrillator by Kevin Walsh from Newark Community First Aid restarted his heart. A paramedic and an ambulance were quickly on the scene and Mr Wilderspin was taken to Lincoln County Hospital.
