Unsung heroes in the community were celebrated at an awards ceremony in London Colney.

The inaugural London Colney Parish Council (LCPC) Community Awards event was held on October 18 at the Caledon Community Centre.

Rev Adrian Wood won the Good Neighbour award, Naomi Czbuba Dance bagged Business in the Community category, Peter Yexley was commended for Service to the Community, and both the First London Colney Scouts and Nevina Holland from Peekaboo Studios jointly received The Chairman’s Award.

LCPC chairman, Cllr Malcolm MacMillan, said “There is a lot going on in our community in the form of volunteering, without people seeking recognition for their individual contributions, and that is the key to these awards; people were not looking for a reward for what they do.”

All award winners have been entered into a Citizen of the Year Award, the winner of which will be announced at the LCPC’s annual dinner dance on December 15. Tickets at 01727 821314.

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.
