A jumble sale in St Albans is raising money for animal charities.

St Albans Animal Rights (STAR) is hosting the event to top up other fundraising activities - they recently collected more than £400 at St Albans Market and more than £300 outside Sainsbury’s.

The group was started by a group of friends about 25 years ago, and since then they have staged demonstrations, gone to protests, and even had a float at the St Albans Carnival.

At one point there were around 30 active members of the group.

Treasurer and founding member, Siobhan Barrett, encouraged everyone to visit the sale: “People come from a very long distance, we have people coming from North London and all over the place.”

STAR supports a variety of animal rights charities - from national house-hold names to local projects.

The jumble sale will be on May 20, at 11am. Entry is 40p in Sandridge Village hall.

Police are warning drivers to protect their cars after a spate of car thefts in St Albans, Harpenden and London Colney.

Ambulances have been head butted, kicked, and had blue lights ripped off in shocking acts of vandalism on the emergency vehicles - sometimes while crews have been trying to treat patients.

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.
