School Holidays

Today will be the official day that schools right across the UK will be closing for the summer holidays! So far we have had a fantastic summer and now that all the kids will be out we hope it will continue. There will be approximately 6 weeks of freedom for children of all ages until school opens it's doors again. Make sure they count! No matter where you live in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, there is something you can do with the whole family. Our sister directory, Great Days Out UK, as well as our Days Out and Leisure page, Quoakle Days Out and Leisure, can help. Enjoy!

Summer is here once again

Yes, summer is here once again on these shores and we are looking forward to enjoying all that the United Kingdom has to offer - from BBQ's to boating! The latest news is that Great Britain may be heading for a heatwave this week too! Find out more here: UK Heatwave If you are stuck to what to do this summer, you could always find things to do here: Quoakle Days Out and Leisure as well as on our sister directory Great Days Out UK Hope you are enjoying the football too!

Recent trips

Both Nigel and Sean had been away and returned to the UK last week. Sean was visiting his homeland of Canada and afterwards spent some time in the USA, while Nigel and Helen went to Israel for the first time! Both sets of travellers had a great time, even more so knowing that Tim Davis was in complete control of all of the various websites. He even had time to do a little tweaking on the Great Days Out UK Directory while the rest of the team were away! It is still easy and quick to use!

The New Great Days Out UK Directory is now LIVE!

Yes, it is true, finally the new website for Great Days Out UK has been unleashed onto an unsuspecting world! Thankfully with Tim Davis at the helm, the launching of the directory went smoothly enough. We are incredibly chuffed with how the website looks and believe it will be a better experience for the user. We have made searching through the website a lot easier too. We hope you enjoy using our new directory! Here is a picture of Tim right after the directory went live. Enjoy the cookies Tim!

Great Days Out UK getting a New Look

We have some exciting news concerning our sister directory, Great Days Out UK! Since Tim's return, the Quoakle office has been ablaze with creativity and new ideas. As with most things on the internet these days, businesses do what they can to keep up-to-date with the constant flow of change that takes place. We always endeavour to make our websites the most user friendly on the world wide web! So as it stands, we are currently working on a new and improved Great Days Out directory! We will keep updated as the work progresses!

Tim has Returned!

Yes, after 5 months of being away the prodigal son has returned - even though he is not related to any other member of the Quoakle office or was a prodigal son in any shape or form. He flew out to Sydney, Australia on the 26th of September and was based there with YWAM (Youth With a Mission) Sports DST. He also spent 6 weeks in Vanuatu as part of his placement. To find out more about what he got up to, visit - http://timdownunder.org.uk/. We are just glad that he has returned well and healthy even though he may have lost a kilo or two in weight! Welcome back Tim...

One Month in already

Well, it is hard to believe that January has come to an end! It seems that Christmas was only just yesterday and here we are now into February already!? Things have been going full steam ahead, despite the odd cough, dizzy head and chest infection! Tim is still away but will be landing back in the UK in little under a months time. We have certainly missed him. Both Nigel and Sean have been able to hold the fort minus Tim's invaluable skills, but it hasn't been easy to say the least. We hope that you have all had a good start to the year. We trust that 2018 will be a good one!

Happy New Year!

Well, 2017 went really quickly didn't it? We are now already over a week into the new year! It has taken a few days to recover from the mince pies and over indulging. We hope all of our clients, friends and families had a wonderful time together. We hope 2018 will be a year of blessing and prosperity to one and all. The Quoakle team carry on regardless and we are looking forward to Tim Davis returning to these shores next month. If you would like to know how he has been doing down under, you can find out more from here, Tim Down Under

Merry Christmas

It seems an age since we last placed a blog up on our directory! Sorry for the silence. However, we would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our customers, family and friends a peaceful, joyful Merry Christmas!

Tim’s Farewell

Yes, it was emotional but we know that Tim will have a fantastic time in Australia! Nigel, Sean and Tim, went to A Harvester Restaurant near Gloucester's city centre. It seemed strange that it was going to be our last get together before Tim's departure but we know he will be back in the UK in February! So, we wish you all the best Tim!
