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.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
