Here’s a glimpse of pure nostalgia – a dancing competition at the old Savoy ballroom, Southsea.

It was taken on April 21, 1965, and the couple in the bottom right of the picture are Norman and June Jones, of Chilgrove Road, Drayton.

They went on to represent the south of England in the Come Dancing TV series and Norman was employed to carry out a survey of the building before it was converted to Nero’s night club.
