Pupils from a school Rotary Interact club sold homemade cakes to help raise money at the St Albans Charity Cycle Ride.

The three girls from St Albans Girls School (STAGS), Anisah Choudhuri from Year 9 and Ila Cibu and Carys MacIntyre from Year 8, sold a selection of homemade cakes throughout the event on Sunday.

Anisah said: “It was a nice fun day out for the families in St Albans. I felt privileged and proud to be there in my Rotary tabard.”

Mayor of St Albans Mohammad Iqbal Zia, who attended the Cycle Ride, praised the pupils for their efforts, which raised more than £300 for their chosen charities; MS, Connected and The Donkey Sanctuary. This is the third year STAGS has run a cake stall at the event.

Rotary youth mentor Lavinia Hale said: “Thanks go to Year 7 and 8 pupils and their families at STAGS for generously donating all the delicious edible sweet treats which were so well received by the local visitors.”

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.
