Natasha Dowie [2006] on loan to Melbourne Victory

England and Liverpool Ladies striker Natasha Dowie has joined Australian side Melbourne Victory on loan.

The 27-year-old, who scored 14 goals for the Reds this season, has agreed a two-month deal and will stay until the end of the W-League campaign. Dowie said: “I have always wanted to play abroad and experience different styles of play. I am relishing the opportunity to go out on loan.”

Victory are managed by former Bristol Academy boss Dave Edmondson . But they are bottom of the table after losing their opening five matches and seem unlikely to reach the play-offs, meaning their season would end in early January.

Dowie signed a new contract with Liverpool before the start of the season, but the Reds finished seventh in the eight-team Women’s Super League.

Olivia Beach [2013] sets up Kos refugee Christmas Appeal

An ex-student, Olivia Beach (2006–13), has set up a local charity project called Kos Refugee Christmas Appeal. The aim is to fill 2,000 bags with essentials and small gifts for the refugees and then ship the filled bags to the island where a local charity will receive the delivery and distribute the bags in the days leading up to Christmas.

Olivia is looking for any volunteers to fill bags! There are 5 categories of bag; newborn, young boy, young girl, teenager and adult. If you think you would be interested in helping her with this project, please send an email to koschristmasappeal@gmail.com.

If you are a member of a local group or society that may want to fill bags, please get in touch as she is looking for local groups to fill bags together, take a photo with your bags and then send it to the project to share on social media and the website!

You can also find more information by visiting her website –

The RP school charity captains think it is a wonderful idea, and hope that some of you can help brighten up these people’s Christmas.           Thank you.

Olivia is currently studying a 4 year BSc Politics with Economics degree at the University of Bath.

Sergeant Steven Alison now in Harpenden.

Acting sergeant Steven Alison, who grew up and attended Roundwood Park school in Harpenden, has joined the town’s safer neighbourhood team after working in the Hemel Hempstead equivalent for the past year.

For the past four years acting sergeant Alison has chaired the St Albans and Harpenden Volunteer Police Cadets for young people between the ages of 14 to 18.

He said: “I am very fond of Harpenden having grown up here, it’s a lovely place to live and I’m delighted to now be safer neighbourhood team sergeant for the town.

“I really enjoy working within safer neighbourhood teams as this type of work enables you to become involved with the communities you serve and allows you to be out and about talking to people, which I really enjoy.

“I will be focusing on our local neighbourhood priorities of tackling speeding in areas of the town, occasional anti-social behaviour issues and preventing burglary by encouraging people to join neighbourhood watch and considering simple crime prevention methods.

“Overall I am looking forward to building on the already very strong relationships we have in Harpenden to reduce crime further, bring those responsible for crime to justice and ensure the community plays an active role in helping police to keep Harpenden a safe place to live and work.”
