Nearly 2,000 people came to Redbourn leisure centre for the third annual Redbourn Fun Run on Sunday, May 21.

They watched the largest number of runners take part so far, 802 in total, run either 1km, 3km, or 5km.

Redbourn leisure centre manager Anona Lundgren said: “We’re delighted to have hosted this fantastic community event for the third year running.

“There were more runners participating than ever before, and a huge amount was raised for two wonderful charities. A big thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s Redbourn Fun Run the best one so far!”

Over £10,000 was raised for Herts Air Ambulance and Redbourn Infant and Junior Schools from the run.

In addition to the run, there were various stalls and activities, including an obstacle course.

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.
