A former St Albans mayor is running for Herts county council in the election on Thursday, May 4.

Annie Brewster, currently a district councillor for Wheathampstead, is contesting the Harpenden Rural seat.

She told the Herts Advertiser: “I feel most honoured to be the selected candidate for Harpenden Rural division.

“If elected, I very much look forward to using my passion and energy to deliver positive change to some of our district’s loveliest rural villages as their representative at County Hall.”

Several other big names from the district council are running for a county seat.

Among them is Labour’s Dreda Gordon, re-running for her county seat, who said: “I have been a county councillor for the last four years.

“I believe I have made a real difference in the community and I want to carry on doing so.”

St Albans’ Sandy Walkington is another of the county councillors running again. He said: “It is an absolute privilege.

“I represent a wonderful area that contains such a diverse range of people, and I hope they will give me the chance to continue serving them.”

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.
