Nearly 100 people gathered to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Harpenden Seniors Forum last week.

As well as some of the forum’s 1,500 members, the tea party was also attended by the town mayor David Heritage, the forum’s president Alan Cox and his wife Rita.

The forum’s chair Fiona Gaskell said “We are very pleased with the success of this event, which demonstrates how the forum has grown and developed over the past ten years.

“Alan Cox deserves all the credit for his drive and initiative in getting the forum going and establishing it as a well-known local organisation.

“By happy coincidence the event was held on Alan and his wife’s 54th wedding anniversary, so it was a very special day for them.”

Membership of the forum is free and all of its members live in the AL5 postcode area, which covers Harpenden.

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.
