A bigger bakery and two new jobs have been created at Batford Co-Op following a £550k refurbishment.

The Lower Luton Road store will reopen on Friday, May 25 and will be open between 6am and 10pm every day.

Co-Op area manager Stephen Allsey said: “We are delighted to have undertaken such a significant investment, enabling the store to better serve its community.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming members and customers back into their new-look Co-op. We are proud to be part of the community, and our ambition is to ensure our stores are a local hub, a real asset locally.”

Co-Op members who purchase own-brand goods at the store will receive a five per cent reward and the Co-Op will donate a further one per cent to good causes, which in the past have included Redbourn Scout Group, and Roundwood Park and The Grove School parent-teacher associations.

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.
