Royal objection could scupper jubilee fun
Friday, 11 May 2012
THE big joint Queen’s Diamond jubilee and Olympic celebrations on Teignmouth seafront are threatened by complaints from residents.
A few living at the Royal Court retirement flats are opposing an application by the town council for a permanent music, drink and general entertainment licence for the Den.
They fear it will cause more noise, disruption and rowdyism, and if they win, the three-week programme of fun with a host of live bands, which has taken months to organise, will be cancelled.
The vital meeting to apply for the licence is on May 18 at Teignbridge Council and the knees-up is due to begin the next day.
The Olympic torch will cross Shaldon Bridge on Sunday

these being the people that moved into that location knowing that things were held on the den which is for the people not just for the quiet enjoyment of the moaning few at royal court. perhaps they should move to the quiet location they so desire. can they not just get with the spirt of the event that many have worked to put in place. for many to enjoy you all make me sick. stop moaning and enjoy
