Howard Croft column: Only credentials – being someone’s grandfather

We went down South to attend a celebration of my daughter’s birthday. Although not a significant one, the birthday that is, not the daughter, the celebration seems to involve a number of events of which I was lucky enough to be invited to one.

A parade with horses and chariots passes the elaborate frontage of the Queen's Hotel on North Marine Road. The hotel was built in 1848 and for many years was one of Scarborough's premier hotels.
In March 1941 the frontage was so severely damaged by German bombing that it was never repaired and was to be demolished in 1948.

Feeding time for the lions at Flamingo Land.

View from the Zoo: Replicating a lion’s natural behaviour

At Flamingo Land we have a pride of nine African lions. As they are carnivores they receive a meaty feast usually two or three times a week. By gorging on a large amount of food it results in them not needing to eat again for a few days. This is how they would naturally feed in the wild, therefore we are trying to replicate their natural behaviour as closely as we can. However, it is discouraged to feed carnivores live prey within UK zoos, therefore we are unable to provide them with the ability to hunt like they would in the wild.

Pedestrian warning light similar to the feature fitted on BMW cars.

Howard Croft column: Not convinced car safety feature is right approach

We are a two car family. I have a 1969 Morris Traveller in British racing green, much admired in my locality, but with little in the way of driver support systems. A fuel gauge that gives vague and unreliable readings and a red light that when lit indicates trouble ahead, also vague. That is it.

Nostalgia: A busy and lively community

Squire Humphrey Osbaldeston left a lasting material signature on his manor at Hunmanby, but a contemporary of his, Francis Wrangham (1769-1842), was in many ways a more influtential resident there two hundred years ago.
