Budget hotel chain Travelodge is looking to expand into Radlett.

After opening a hotel in Welwyn Garden City, the chain has announced it wants to double its portfolio of hotels in the region.

Travelodge communications director Shakila Ahmed said: “The Hertfordshire economy is growing at pace and with increasing visitor numbers to the area, there is a shortage of good quality accommodation at a great value price.

“We have identified Radlett as one of eight key Hertfordshire locations, where we would like to open a Travelodge hotel. This expansion will nearly double our portfolio in the region, boost each local economy by £2m and collectively create 200 new jobs, including 25 in Radlett.”

It has been claimed by Travelodge that its customers will spend £2m a year with local businesses during their stay.

The chain is also looking to open hotels in Potters Bar, Stevenage and Watford.

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.
