No topic is off limits at two public meetings being held next week on the subject of the Christmas market.

St Albans council is asking people to come and give their views on the location, opening hours, management, marketing, vendor fees, attractions, and type of produce sold at the Vintry Garden fair.

Council cabinet member Beric Read said: “We are very open-minded about how the market should be developed and will be receptive to ideas and suggestions about any changes people would like to see.”

The meetings are being held at the Civic Centre on St Peter’s Street on Saturday, February 3 from 10am to noon in the council chamber, and Wednesday, February 7 from 6pm to 8pm in committee room one.

Organisers have asked people to let them know they are coming by emailing christmas@stalbans.gov.uk

Those who cannot attend but would like to submit their views can do so by emailing that address.

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.
