Around 200 riders took part in the annual SACA charity bike ride, which has included a stop for refreshment at Veer Dhara in Hatfield Road since the restaurant opened in 2009.

This year money raised from the ride will be used to fund Helping Hands Projects in association with Well Child UK, for children and young adults living with serious illnesses.

The ride starts in Birmingham and proceeds through Coventry, Daventry and Bedfordshire before an overnight stay in Luton. In the morning the ride passes through St Albans before continuing on to Radlett, Elstree, Harrow and Southall in West London.

The buffet offers the riders tea, coffee, samosas and fried chips.

Owner Darshit Hora said: “I feel immensely proud for being able to support SACA for the eighth year in a row.”

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
