A former headteacher who wrote a children’s book for reluctant readers is looking for businesses to sponsor copies for schools.

Kevin Bullock, formerly head at Fordham Primary School in Cambridgeshire, published The Animals of Blipp with all profits from sales of the book going to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Mr Bullock, who lives at Fornham St Martin, near Bury St Edmunds, says his book, which is set to rhyme, is ideal for reluctant or struggling readers.

After leaving school at the age of 15, with no qualifications, Mr Bullock went on to be a headteacher as well as an adviser to the Cabinet Office on educational issues.

He said: “It took me 10 years of remedial work and evening classes to get to an acceptable level of literacy. I’ve been lucky, many are not.

“I am therefore thrilled when I receive feedback about how my book is helping reluctant and struggling readers.”

Any companies looking to sponsor copies, or for more information, contact kevinbullock@mail.com

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.

A Colchester woman accused of murdering a rough sleeper, whose badly beaten body was found in a car park, allegedly saw one of her co-defendants bite off the victim’s ear lobe and try to get him to swallow it.

Adriano Guedes, aged 65, of Kessingland, moved to England from Portugal more than 15 years ago and was admitted to hospital in 2014 after having a stroke.

A woman walking her dog along a footpath in Sudbury was confronted by a man who demanded her mobile phone.

Tributes have been paid to the former principal of Chadacre Agricultural College, John Paton Philip MBE, who has died at the age of 92.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.
