It might still be cool underfoot but there is an opportunity to warm up later this month - and raise money for charity at the same time.

Old Albanians are hosting a Fire Walk at Woollams in Harpenden Road, St Albans, on Thursday, March 26, in aid of the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre Charitable Fund

An international quartet of Saracens rugby players joined radiotherapists from the cancer centre to help promote the Fire Walk which invites participants to walk barefoot over 15ft of hot coals.

The players were keen to promote the event but will not be doing it themselves as they have a derby match on the Saturday.

The money raised will go towards providing emotional and practical support from Mount Vernon’s information and support services.

Some places are still available and anyone who would like to take part should contact Liz Hizli on 01923 844455.

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.
