Relaunch of Batchwood Nightclub


A popular St Albans venue has encouraged its customers to club together for charity this summer.

Club Batchwood has announced it will be collecting spare change as part of a ‘Give A Kid A Quid’ appeal from 20th August to 2nd September, which invites clubbers to donate while they dance.

All donations will go the The Echo Trust, which has raised more than £2.5 million to date for local children’s charities.

Lara Higgins, a 21-year-old student from St Albans, said she admired the club’s decision to support the community.

“As someone who often spends their nights out at Batchwood, I think it’s a great idea and an easy way to raise some extra money for a charity.”

General Manager Peter Bell also praised the cause, and said he was confident his customers would dig deep.

“‘Give A Kid A Quid’ is a simple way to raise a lot of money that will transform the lives of young people in our community.

“Our customers always respond generously to appeals for help and I am sure they will once again show how much they care.”

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.
