People living at Field House Care Home in Harpenden raised £100 for disabled transport charity the Barbara Bus Fund and children’s charity the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

The fete, which was held around the home, featured a dog show judged by residents where every pooch won a rosette.

A pony named April also made an appearance and there was a chair based exercise session for residents.

Bupa Home manager, April Parrott-Carter, said it was a fabulous afternoon: “It’s great to bring residents and the local community together and having the sunny weather on our side made all the difference.”

People living at Field House on Townsend Road have access to specialist Parkinson’s, Huntingdon’s, and palliative care support staff.

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.
