Why not support a St Albans special school with their social enterprise?

Every Wednesday between now and Christmas, Watling View School will be selling Christmas gifts made by their students to raise money for its registered charity.

Baubles, decorations, bird boxes, scented candles and latte glasses are just some of the products that have been popular amongst customers looking to support a good cause.

Pupil Andre, 15, said he was “very proud” to be making money for the school and to see the items he had created being met with such warmth from passers-by.

Assistant head Mark Chalcroft said: “This is an amazing opportunity for our students to increase their community presence and participation through a work related learning activity. I am really proud of the way they are interacting with visitors to the stall.”

Funds raised will be put towards the Watling View school fund.

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.
