A trio of St Albans radio presenters have been nominated for a prestigious national broadcasting award.

Radio Verulam volunteers Kathy Weston, Lydia El-Khouri and Seema Barker have been shortlisted for the Speech and Journalism Show of the Year in the Community Radio Association’s Community Radio Awards 2018.

They host The Parents’ Show, which has aired weekly since 2010 and discusses everything involved in the process of raising children.

Specialists and experts are often interviewed on the show.

Kathy said: “It’s so exciting to think that our little show has been picked from the high number of high quality entries for these national awards.

“That recognition in itself is such an honour.”

The trio thanked Julie Dean for managing guests, Neil Brierley and Dave Neal for uploading podcasts, and the show’s sponsors, Mary McEvoy and the whole team at Neves Solicitors.

Listen to The Parents’ Show on Thursday at 8pm.

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.
