The fair was held at the college’s St Albans Campus in Hatfield Road on Sunday, June 10. Each college department hosted different activities, with visitors playing traditional wooden games, shooting hoops with Oaklands Basketball Sports Academy and taking selfies in a student-built car.

There was also a funfair, falconry displays and puppet shows, with the hospitality and catering department serving wood fire pizzas and barbecue treats, and the agricultural students overseeing sheep racing and shearing. Entertainment was provided by the music and performing arts department.

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.
