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.

Nostalgia: Help for destitute children

Most of Scarborough’s post-Reformation almshouses places were offered to the elderly, the infirm and destitute widows; only the parish workhouse took in children under the age of seven and afterwards “put them out” to apprenticeships. Charity provision for children was made for their moral welfare and their future employment. “No charity in Scarbrough (sic) has been so liberally suported as this, and the donations amount to a considerable sum”, such were the published words of Joseph Brogden Baker in his history of the town in 1882 when referring to its Amicable Society.

Kingfishers are especially vocal in spring and autumn.

Country Diary: Shy bird that is often located by its shrill call

“Looking for great crested newts?” I jokingly enquired of a couple, gazing intently with binoculars over the muddy bed of a drained area of the lake near the Open Air Theatre. No, they were seeking a pair of kingfishers in a willow tree. Apparently three days of observation out of five recently, had proved successful. Yes, they were present, but we must wait. It’s a shy bird, and is often first located by its call. Some move to sheltered coasts in winter.

Grow old gracefully and embrace the introudction of young life.

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.
