A GRANDMOTHER in Cirencester is overjoyed after being reunited with her beloved Pandora bracelet.

Anna Blagden, a Cirencester resident was devastated after she lost her bracelet of sentimental value near Tesco in Farrell Close on Tuesday, February 8. 

But jewellery shop manager Denzil Vellacott, 64, brought the bracelet into the Standard's office last Friday morning after seeing Anna’s appeal on page 18 of last week’s paper.

Denzil, who lives near the Tesco store and who is manager of Walter Bull & Son Ltd jewellers on Dyer Street, found the Pandora bracelet on his way home soon after it had been lost.

He spotted the bracelet on Cripps Road near to computer services shop Thirdline.

The Pandora bracelet chain was first given to Anna by her daughter with a heart charm inscribed with the word 'mum' for Mother's Day and her birthday.

Over time, other charms were given to her as presents by family members. 

The Pandora bracelet now has charms which include a phone, a bride and groom, a 'groovy chick', a Buddha, a padlock with a key, a crown, a snowman, and a cancer awareness bead.

Anna said: "I am very happy and overwhelmed that Denzil found my Pandora as losing it really made me feel insecure.

"It was a pleasure knowing this man. He was very kind and caring, and most of all, genuine. I have never met someone so lovely.

"I thank him lots and the police and Tesco for looking for me and my friends for trying to help me find it. 

"I am now reunited with my bracelet."
