Women from across the district are being urged to sign up for this year’s Race for Life.

Anyone who signs up in January for the 5K or 10K events around Verulamium Park will get 30 per cent off entry fees, which go towards Cancer Research UK.

The charity’s Herts event manager Courtney Culverhouse said: “For those who need some extra encouragement to get moving, Race for Life offers the ultimate motivation. That’s because by taking part and raising money, participants will be helping to fund vital cancer research. It’s time to mark the New Year and make a resolution to remember.”

Cancer Research UK senior science communications officer Dr Áine McCarthy said signing up is a great opportunity for women looking to kick-start a healthier lifestyle: “Being regularly active has long-term health benefits, as research shows that even moderate physical activity can help reduce the risk of cancer.”

Sign up here 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.
