Students at Oaklands College’s The Stables Restaurant are hosting a free three-course meal exclusively for war veterans today.

It is part of the St Albans Remembers campaign, which includes a schedule of events to commemorate Remembrance Sunday on November 11 and the centenary of World War One in 2018.

Head chef at the restaurant, Martin West, said: “Oaklands College is proud to be supporting the St Albans Remembers commemorations.

“As a college we take pleasure in supporting the local community, so we’re very much looking forward to welcoming veterans to our stables restaurant.”

The Stables Restaurant is staffed by the college’s catering students and lead by a team of award-winning chefs.

The lunch is due to take place on November 8 from 11.45am to 2pm.

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.
