St Albans Girls’ School (STAGS) invited parents to meet with mental health professionals to learn about the support services available to young people in Hertfordshire.

The afternoon featured information stalls and workshops from CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health services), the OLLIE Foundation, Mind in Mid Herts, Youth Talk and others.

Verity Bramwell, from the OLLIE Foundation, said: “This event is simply amazing.

“It is truly a unique opportunity to bring together these groups so that they can learn from each other and ultimately lots of young people will benefit.”

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.
