Citizen editor: Road safety advice is vital as night's draw in.
GABRIELLE Gardner has not had the best run of luck and her second injuries as a result of being knocked down by a car are certainly cause for concern.
Her mum is quite rightly calling for more safety measures to protect our children crossing the road.

After all, you can put every measure in place but it will not prevent every crash.

As the nights draw in, this is even more vital.
DAD Gordon Elsmore has certainly had a few hard day's nights with his rehearsals for the Let it Be musical.
We all know Gloucestershire is rich in musical heritage from Joe Meek to Brian Jones and so it comes as no surprise that Gordon can also knock out a tune or two but even so, this is a great county coup.
The Beatles were and still are such a draw for fans across the world and no doubt he will be playing to sellout crowds.
MOST of us would love to find a Picasso in the attic but for one artist, she has unearthed a portrait she did of the Spaniard and has put it on display for the first time.
For years it seems Margaret Ward hid her light under a bushell but after a health scare, she has decided to hold an exhibition of her work. And what work it is. Her portraits of celebrities from Lady Ga Ga to Boy George are so eye-catching. Keep up it Margaret.
