The deadline to sign up for this year’s Race for Life is fast approaching.

Women are being urged to register for 2018’s 5k or 10k running event, organised by Cancer Research UK, before it is too late.

About 1,250 women have already committed and there are only 200 places left for the Verulamium Park route on July 22.

Event manager for Race for Life in Hertfordshire, Courtney Culverhouse, said: “Every day, around 90 people are diagnosed with cancer in the east of England.

“Now is the time to commit to Race for Life, join like-minded ladies at the start line and make a real difference in the fight against the disease.

“By taking part and raising money, our participants will play a crucial role in helping to turn discoveries made in the lab into new, better treatments for patients in Hertfordshire and across the UK.”

Entry closes on July 20 - visit raceforlife.org or call 0300 123 0770.

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.
