Surely nobody in their right mind would do such a thing!

A local resident is very concerned after coming home last Tuesday to find that her two six month old kittens had been shot. The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, lives in the Three Crosses / Springfield Road area and is obviously very upset about what has happened to her cats.

It is worrying to think that some irresponsible idiot may be going around targeting animals with an air rifle and I sincerely hope that anybody with any information as to who is responsible will contact the police. (Use Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111 anonymously.)

The cute ginger kitten was shot through the eye. Her eye exploded and the pellet lodged just under her skin, above her shoulder. The gorgeous black kitten was shot in the back. Apart from the money it cost to save the kittens, this incident has made their owner lose confidence in the area she has recently moved to.

Readers will be pleased to know that the kittens are making a speedy recovery.

Phil Rickman to Open Bridstow School Library

Bridstow Primary School PTFA are holding an official opening for the new Library at the school on Thursday, 8th November at 6.30pm. The Library was stocked with books and equipment only after fund-raising by the PTFA which raised around 5,000 over two academic years.

Many local people and businesses who helped the PTFA with this mammoth task, especially with their Strawberry Fair in June 2007, have been invited along to the Library Opening as a way of saying thank you for their support of the PTFA and the school.

The Library will be opened by international best selling author Phil Rickman, who not only lives locally to Bridstow but also bases his Merrily Watkins books in and around the Herefordshire and Forest of Dean areas. His latest novel, 'The Fabric of sin' is set in Garway and an earlier book, 'The Lamp of the Wicked' was set in Ross and Much Marcle. Phil Rickman's work has been described by one newspaper as, 'an episode of the 'Vicar of Dibley' or 'The Archers' suddenly turned into 'Cracker''.

Mr Rickman has written nine books featuring his character Merrily Watkins, who is a female vicar and deliverance consultant for the diocese of Hereford and his stories weave together the criminal, psychological, sociological, spiritual and supernatural realms, not to mention some romance with musician Lol and teenage angst from Merrily's daughter Jane.

At the Library Opening Mr. Rickman, who also writes as Will Kingdom and Thom Madley, will be reading to the children from his own work and will have copies of his books for sale and for signing. The school has also been given a painting by Manchester based artist Paul Bradley, who came along to the Strawberry Fair and created an original work of art with children from the school. Entitled 'Shine as a Light in the World' the painting takes it's inspiration from the school motto and will hang in the new Library area.

PTFA Chair Rose Kibble said how thrilled and excited the PTFA were at not only being able to present the school with all of the books and equipment now in use in the Library, but that the school has been supported in this way by Mr Bradley and Mr Rickman, both of whom have given of their time for free.

'When both a professional artist and a best selling author lend you their support, it makes all of the hard work in raising the money for the Library worthwhile. Not many small school PTFA's receive this sort of support, so we're really pleased. It's also really nice to be able to invite along all of the people who helped the PTFA with their fund-raising for the Library to say a public thank you and to let them see how the children are benefiting from the funds they helped the PTFA to raise.'
