PUPPY love was in the air as youngsters danced away their Valentine's evening.

Central Park nightclub in Felixstowe was heaving with teenagers intent on having a great time at the Lowbiza disco.

Among a sea of red roses there were scores of 13 to 17 year-olds enjoying a safe dance free from drugs, alcohol and tobacco.

It is the second dance that has been organised by the Lowbiza partnership and this time a donation was made from ticket sales to the Vicky Hall Memorial Appeal as well as cash from the sale of red roses.

The partnership, which includes Suffolk Constabulary, Central Park and Suffolk Coastal, aims at giving the youngsters a safe night out as well as promoting awareness of real life issues such as sexual health.

Youngsters from Kesgrave, Martlesham, Woodbridge as well as further afield such as Leiston and Aldeburgh all travelled down to the disco on coaches provided.

Money in the Vicky Hall appeal is being used to build a new pavilion in her name at Trimley St.Mary where she lived.

The 17-year-old disappeared in September 1999 as she walked back from The Bandbox nightclub in the early hours of the morning.

Her naked body was found in a water-filled ditch in Creeting St.Peter five days later.

As yet no one has been convicted of her murder.

Donations towards the appeal should be sent to Geraldine Thompson, Evening Star, 30 Lower Brook Street, Ipswich IP4 1AN.

Cheques should be made payable to Vicky Hall Memorial Fund.
