BIGGER and better than ever - that is the promise from Grove House about the annual Shop in Style event being held at Sopwell House Hotel in St Albans next Saturday, November 7.

Organised once again by Michelle Finch, it will feature two huge rooms filled with a selection of exclusive and independent retailers.

Michelle said: "We have attracted more stalls than ever this year and there will be an opportunity to buy gifts for the whole family. People need not spend a fortune to find that special gift."

Among the stalls will be handmade jewellery and gifts, women's accessories, leather shoes and bags, artwork, home and gardening items and gifts for children. Grove House Christmas cards will also be on sale.

Michelle added: "This is a great way to raise money for Grove House. We will be donating all the entry money and a percentage of sales to help the hospice continue its valuable work supporting local people with cancer."

Entry to Shop in Style is £2 on the door and a raffle, tombola and festive refreshments will be available.

l A Grove House banner advertising this year's Shop in Style event has gone missing from its position at Junction Nine of the M1 motorway.

Fundraiser Liz Hizli said: "These banners really help to promote our many fundraising events. We always obtain permission before putting them up; they are expensive to produce so if anyone has any information about what could have happened to this banner, please contact me as soon as possible."

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.
