EX-ENGLAND and Saracens rugby player Richard Hill will be getting participants off to a flying start at the 2009 Herts 10K Challenge next Sunday, October 11.

Runners and walkers from around the local area have been signing up in their thousands for the event which Richard will start at Rothamsted in Harpenden.

St Albans Sainsburys are supporting the event by providing participants with water and fruit both during and at the end of the race.

The Herts 10K is in aid of Grove House which is hoping that it could raise as much as £200,000 in sponsorship.

There is still time to register for a place by visiting www.herts10k.com or by calling Sannah on 01727 731002.

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.
