Donna Peters column: Eat seasonal produce for a more healthy lifestyle

Why is it important to eat seasonally? Quite simply, when you eat locally and seasonally you know you are eating the freshest, most nutrient dense, abundantly available produce.

Scouts and Girl Guides join forces for a St George's Day celebration.

Howard Croft column: Boy Scouts and the Girl Guides merger on way?

Two stories in the press recently caught my eye, one of which is of local interest, but first let me, with a due sense of dread, deal with the wider issue: transgenderism. The Boy Scouts Association have followed their sister (if I may use that word) organisation, the Girl Guides in codifying its attitude and practices to boys who identify themselves as really being girls or express a preference for that gender. And vice versa of course.

Howard Croft column: How innocent people are made criminals

You may remember reading a few years ago about a young unemployed man as he was leaving his post office having cashed his benefits Giro accidentally dropping a £10 note. He was spotted by a council litter warden who promptly issued an on-the-spot fine for littering. This was such a mean-spirited response, and at the time unusual, that it made headlines in the national newspapers. If I remember correctly, which I seldom do these days, the council stood firmly behind the litter warden, a council employee, until it eventually dawned on its senior staff that the reputational damage was too great to justify standing on a dubious point of principle.

Howard Croft column: Grandchildren proud of their old relatives

People go to some lengths to conceal evidence of advancing years, some of them starting from an early age. Lying about age is, I suppose, fairly common but I detect a gender (if I may use that word) difference: women will tend to claim to be younger that they truly are, whereas men don’t do that – they wait for years and then start claiming that they are older than they truly are. I cannot explain this.

Howard Croft column: Brutal-looking homes now museum ‘gems’

The Victoria and Albert Museum is reported to have acquired part of one of the country’s most notorious buildings with intention of displaying it as an architectural “treasure”. I suppose that once we could have referred to this block of council flats as “the” most notorious buildings, but since the Grenfell tower block fire that building holds the top spot never, I hope, to be surpassed.
