Children wearing period costumes set up a stall in Morrisons on Hatfield Road as part of their history lessons on the Second World War.

Rachael Black, who is a member of the PTA and has two sons in Year Six and Year Four, set up the stall with fellow mum Emma Murphy. She said: “It’s a way the children can be part of the community and understand giving and volunteering for others. It’s about being a good person and giving back to society which is part of the school ethos.

“It’s something we try to instil in them each day in school. Year Six have a history focus this term on World War Two which ties in with PSHE.”

I had been wondering if she would be there. I had encountered what looked like the remains of her feasting along the path. The telltale circle of piled feathers that indicated a pigeon devoured, plucked breast up, the carcass taken for final pickings by its captor.
