St Albans fire station is holding an open day on Saturday, September 1 from 12pm to 4pm at their London Road base.

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service are hoping it will be a great opportunity for the general public to gain some important safety advice.

There will be several hot oil demonstrations throughout the day, and a demonstration of the cutting equipment firefighters use on several cars and there will be a session on what is involved in a road traffic collision incident.

There will also be an Arial ladder platform and teddy bear parachutes, with the addition of a barbecue alongside various stalls and attractions, such as a roundabout, a bouncy castle and an ice cream van.

There is no parking at the station, but visitors are welcome to park in the Samuel Ryder Academy car park near to the station.

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.
