St George’s School in Sun Lane celebrated St George’s Day on Friday, April 27 by hosting soldiers from the Parachute Regiment, who taught pupils about the life of a soldier and the expanding role of women in the forces.

The school catering department also cooked and served 850 curries in an hour as part of The Soldiers’ Charity’s ‘Big Curry’ project, before the Great Curry Run on Sunday, April 29.

Six-hundred and eight people aged between five and 73 took part in the Great Curry Run, walking or running 20km along the Nickey Line and the pavements of West Common.

This year the money raised, around £30,000, was split between The Soldiers’ Charity and Humanitas, which protects vulnerable children around the world and was founded by former pupil Sarah Wade.

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.
