Grab some chocolate goodies while doing your bit for local charities at Easter egg hunts taking place across the district this weekend.

The annual Wick Wood Easter egg hunt is taking place on Saturday from 10am-12 noon with proceeds donated to the Woodland Trust.

Families are welcomed to take part in a search for five special tokens in exchange for chocolate treats. The 50p entry fee will be donated to the Woodland Trust, which plans to plant 64 million trees over the next 10 years, conserve woodland, habitats and wildlife.

Herts Action on Disability (HAD) is hosting an Easter ‘eggstravaganza’ on Easter Monday at The Old Bell pub in Harpenden from 2pm.

The day will consist of an Easter egg hunt and a raffle, the winner of which will take home an amazing 10kg Swiss chocolate egg.

Fundraiser Paul Bishop said: “We are very much an inclusive organisation and that’s why we are encouraging mums, dads, aunts, uncles and grandparents to join in. Why should only the children have all the fun?”

All proceeds will be used to support the charity in purchasing new mobility equipment, carrying out research and supporting information services.

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.
