Art theft

BURNGATE STONE CARVING CENTRE was broken into over the weekend and several items from the gallery have been taken, mainly metal pieces but a few stone pieces too. The metal figures are unique, a rose, a knight on horseback and a mythical looking figure with wings and a bird-like head. Also 3 brass sundial tops, a stone oval shape sculpture about 2 feet tall, a polished stone lizard and a mirror with a stone frame. Plus several other smaller pieces. Please just be aware and if you get offered anything or come across any of the pieces, please contact the centre on 01929 439405. They would be very grateful if you would share this notice with as many people as you can. Thank you.

In partnership with Dogs Trust and Purbeck District Council, the veterinary charity’s annual UK-wide PetCheck tour will be at the following locations from 9am to 4pm.

For safety reasons only dogs can be brought along to the PetCheck vehicle.
