Beer petition gains ground

A Petition calling for the abandonment of the beer duty escalator has hit more than 100,000 signatures.

This means a parliamentary debate will take place about the tax placed on beer.

Beer drinkers are penalised by duty levels increasing above inflation each year - with tax on beer up by more than 40 per cent since 2008. A third of every pub pint is swallowed in tax.

Take That and Party in town

they’ll be a Million Love Songs when a Take That tribute band play at a Doncaster hotel.

Top band Simply Take That will perform on October 6 at the Earl of Doncaster in Bennetthorpe.

Tickets to the gig including a three-course meal cost £29.95 per person.
