St Albans’ local radio station has scooped a National Community Radio Award for its popular parenting show.

The Parents’ Show team from Radio Verulam received the speech and journalism award at the ceremony in Sheffield on Saturday, September 15.

Presenters Lydia El-Khouri, Kathy Weston and Seema Barker attended the event alongside team member Dave Neal and Radio Verulam co-founder Clive Glover.

Kathy said: “When they had announced the third and second places and we weren’t mentioned, we really thought that was it. But then they mentioned how the winning show handled difficult subjects sensitively, and we knew it had to be us!”

The judges described the show as “very well targeted”, and praised how it “handled sensitive, challenging subjects with both skill and care”.

Many of the shows are available on the Radio Verulam website and on iTunes.

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.
