It could be the perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to own a piece of pop music memorabilia.

The star has donated a Martin & Co, Sheeran X Signature guitar - and signed it - to be sold for charity at the Clarke & Simpson auction at Campsea Ashe on Monday April 9, 2018.

It also comes with a Martin & Co gig bag.

The guitar has been included in the Clarke & Simpson Art Deco, 20th Century design and retro auction, and is being sold in aid of the Dennington village hall charity.

Chairman of Dennington village hall, James Maberly, said: “We are very excited about it. We would like to make as much as possible, between £2,000 and £6,000 for the village hall project. The auction is also on the internet, so who knows what will happen.”

Ed Sheeran had donated the guitar, he said.

Dennington, with a population of little more than 580, is looking to raise £250,000 to redevelop the village hall.

It is currently little more than a barn, with no heating. it needs heating, better insulation and other improvements.

“We have raised about £220,00 so far, we are in the last stages, but it is proving tough.

“This could help make the difference.”

They hoped to reach the fundraising target during April/May with the aim of starting work on the project during the summer.

The Clarke & Simpson auction is at the Campsea Ashe sale rooms on Monday April 9, beginning at 9.30am. The Ed Sheeran guitar is Lot 401.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.

A woman walking her dog along a footpath in Sudbury was confronted by a man who demanded her mobile phone.

Tributes have been paid to the former principal of Chadacre Agricultural College, John Paton Philip MBE, who has died at the age of 92.
