There is a £5 start in life in store for a local baby. Rickmansworth and Chorleywood Savings Committee is celebrating the golden jubilee of the savings movement by setting aside an amount of £5 for the baby or babies born in its area on March 1.

Babies in Croxley Green, Mill End, Maple Cross and West Hyde will be included. If one only is born, he or she will start with a £5 bank balance. If more than one is born, the money will be shared between all the new arrivals.
