Millions of pets face an Unhappy Blue Year, says PDSA

Forget Blue Monday  millions of pets face a Blue Year unless their owners take steps to end their stress, obesity and loneliness, according to leading pet wellbeing charity PDSA.

The warning comes on Monday 15 January  hallmarked as Blue Monday  where short,  dark days, empty pockets and dwindling New Years resolutions all add up to create the most melancholic day of the year. But PDSA is urging pet owners to spare a thought for the pets who face another year of loneliness and boredom going far beyond the joyless January blues.

ANTHONY Gormley’s famous work made up of 40,000 small terracotta figures was reproduced by talented Portsmouth infants.

Almost 300 pupils at College Park Infants in North End produced a clay figure each to make their own version of Field for the British Isles (pictured).

It formed the centrepiece of their spectacular art exhibition which involved drawing, painting and creating sculptures alongside students from the University of Portsmouth, South Downs College and Mayfield School.

Headteacher Debra Anderson said: ‘It was a fabulous week. While we focus on raising standards in the basic skills of literacy and numeracy it is important to have a breadth of curriculum which encompasses the arts.

‘The children were inspired and produced work of a very high quality. There was a real buzz around the whole school.’
