Christmas wish to find violin stolen just weeks before exam

An 11 year old girl’s wish this Christmas is that her violin which has been stolen, is returned to her.

The young girl’s mother Ruth Watson is appealing for information after her daughter’s violin has been stolen weeks before her Grade 4 Exam.

The instrument has a distinctive, striped, walnut back and was in a blue carry case which has a broken strap and a split carrying handle.

Its main value is that it belonged to her Aunt, who also learned to play on this violin when she was a child.

If you have any information, contact the police quoting the crime reference 44190419662 or if found, please drop it into the Prince of Wales pub in Newport, where you will be welcomed with a couple of pints and no questions asked.
