NSG Performing Arts, which includes students and staff from Mandeville primary school, will next year perform at the Dance Excellence festival.

Mandeville head Cathy Longhurst called them: “A committed group of people going from strength to strength.”

The festival, which is being held in Los Angeles, draws over 15,000 dancers from 28 countries.

Teams come from as far away as the UAE and the Philippines to take part.

NSG’s co-owner Nick Green said: “It’s going to be huge and exciting.

“It’s not a competition, but it turns into one!”

NSG are currently raising money to go to the festival, and have already received funding from St Albans council.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.


Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
