THE Scope charity shop in the Maltings Shopping Centre, St Albans, has recently undergone a revitalising refit and will re-open to the public on Saturday October 24 at 9.00am.

The disability charity is in the process of upgrading selected stores in time for the festive season, and all flagship shops will all be brought right up-to-date without losing any of the charm that has made them such local favourites.

Celebrating the refit, the shop's newest member of staff, assistant shop manager Christiane Williams, who has been working for Scope for four months, will be cutting the ribbon before the shop opens its doors to the public on Saturday.

Shop manager Jo Osbourne said: "Our shop has always been a fantastic place for high-quality clothes at good prices and now we will give customers an enhanced shopping experience. We are also asking everyone to come along, take a look around and bring in the clothes they don't use any more."

To increase the role the shop plays in the St Albans community, one of the new additions to the store will be a community noticeboard, which will advertise local clubs, theatre and drama productions, council-run events, local attractions and have tourist information.

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.
