The group behind the Wheathampstead library have taken a great step forward with a successful public meeting.

More volunteers have come forward to help run the service following a village meeting on Monday, April 10.

Chair of the group’s management committee, Chrissie Chandey, said: “I am delighted with the response from the village with more than 70 people attending the meeting and more people signing up to volunteer, which makes us all optimistic about our library’s future, as it is a precious community facility.”

The meeting was held in the run-up to the reopening of the library as a community-run amenity in September.

Two representatives from Hertfordshire library service discussed how the library could be run.

Attendees were also shows a short film about showing how the library could become the focal point of the community.

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.
