There will be a free tea party for the over-60s population in St Albans next Wednesday.

Community Central has invited them to the Jubilee Centre on Catherine Street between 1.30pm and 3.30pm.

Acting-Chief Exec of Community Central, Kate Newton, said: “We know that Christmas can be an expensive and worrying time for older people.

“Please don’t go without, don’t cut back on your heating bills, or take out a doorstep loan.

“We are here to help in any way we can even if it’s just free tea and cakes and a listening ear. Please pop along and see us at our tea party.”

The event is free to attend, and also involves a raffle, and information about activities and support in St Albans district.

To find out more call 01727 814644 and Paul or Kate can provide more information.

Community Central was called St Albans CVS until it relaunched this month.

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.
