Changes are a-coming

It has been awhile since we have updated you all about news from the Quoakle office. Things have been slowly changing but from the 12th of November onwards the changes will be in full throttle! Nigel will be going back to teaching. This has always been his passion and amazingly a door has opened up for him to teach 3 days a week in a school in Berkshire! This will have an effect on both Tim and Sean but they feel this is right. Tim has been working for another company in Cheltenham and he has seen his workload increase bit by bit so it seems we are all entering into a new season of sorts. Sean will be travelling to Israel on the 12th of November for 11 days, while Nigel starts his new job on the same day! This will mean that Tim will be holding the fort for awhile but then will be going to France in December for a few weeks. So you can see that a lot has and will be happening towards the end of the year.

5 Best Luggage Storage Tips

You can’t keep your eyes on your luggage all day long when you are out on a trip. So here are some tips for you for better luggage storage. 1- Using right locks You need to make sure that your bag is locked rightly when you are on travel. Select the best locks for your bag which don’t get broke and should be highly secure. The locks approved by TSA are not completely secure and their master key could be easily available to anyone. So the better option for you to have completely secure locks on your bag and if somehow you are not able to do so, then use a fastener and attach it to the zip of your bag. This way you’ll be alerted all the time and you’ll keep checking your bag. Putting no lock on the bag just because you know that no lock is safe would be a mistake. So just put a lock on your bag and make one thing sure that the lock should be thick, thick enough that no one could cut it. 2- Keep Eye Contact with the Bag As you can’t keep your eyes on your bag all the time...

Autumn is returning

Well, didn't we have a glorious summer? For some of June and much of July the heat was incredible! August was a quiet month for the Quoakle office but now we are once again in September and this week schools will be opening their doors to revisiting and new students alike. The autumn in the UK can still be beautiful with the changing of the leaves and the cooler, darker evenings. This time of year can be one of the best times to explore England and Wales. We have 14 topics to choose from that can help your every need. Choose Quoakle for your quick and local directory this fall!

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!

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://www.timothycdavis.co.uk/timdownunder/. 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...
