On Friday night, a representative from Watford New Hope Trust discussed homelessness, its causes and effects, with a group of Cheddington Scouts.
Some of them then spent a windy, wet night sleeping rough in the church yard at St Giles.
My own choice of bed was cardboard city inspired. Two removal company boxes taped together and waterproofed with cling film.
Quite cosy really, but getting in and out took more flexibility than my aged body now ideally likes to boast.
