Maltings Community Heroes

Archant

A new initiative has been launched to celebrate the valiant heroes of the St Albans community.

Whether it’s someone who has lent a neighbourly hand, taken it upon themself to help clear out the streets of rubbish or raised thousands of pounds for charity, their story is worth being heard.

The Maltings Community Heroes is a campaign that will run until September, and each month the shopping centre will be rewarding £100 to spend in their stores for one of these heroes. To enter simply email your story to communityhero@hertsad.co.uk including the name of the nominee, their contact details and your name and contact details.

The Maltings Community Heroes is a campaign to accompany the Herts Advertiser Community Awards. These will launch officially in May 2015, and will celebrate the achievements of many of our local unsung heroes. There will be 11 categories to choose from, and you will be able to enter these online, more information to come in May.

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.
