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. We are still contactable on either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and also on 01452 595377 However, this doesn't... Read More
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!
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!
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!
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...
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!
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!
You may recall back on the 28th of February that we had said that Timothy C Davis, of TCD Web Design was going to Australia for 6 months, well unfortunately it never worked out and was postponed until September 2017!Even though there has been a couple of cancellations for Tim's YWAM (Youth With a Mission) placement, he hasn't given up and all being well, will be flying out to Sydney, Australia in September after all. As stated in a couple of previous blogs, the duration will be 6 months in total and as also previously stated, he will be sorely missed!Nigel came back from a wonderful time in New Zealand last week after being away for a few weeks. He was able to spend some time with his youngest Daughter and Son-in-law, who were expecting a baby at any moment! It was a bit of a family reunion, as Helen (wife) and Hannah (eldest daughter) were able to be there to help out and support the new addition to their family!Sean will be flying out to Lapland from the middle of June and will be on a missions trip for almost 6 weeks in total. We trust that Great Days... Read More
You may recall back in August of last year, Tim Davis of TCD Web Design, was planning to fly out to Sydney, Australia to attend a YWAM (Youth With A Mission) Sports DTS (Discipleship Training School). See http://quoakle.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/australia-beckons-for-tim.html for more info. Well, that was unfortunately postponed BUT it looks like he will now be going to Oz in April instead! He currently still needs to raise money to get him to Australia and to take part in the lecture phase of the DTS, so here are a few links to ways that you can support him: https://www.justgiving.com/start-fundraising https://www.paypal.me/timothycdavis/10 To find out more about YWAM click here: www.ywam.org/about-us/ Tim plans to be away for 6 months still. He will be sorely missed in the Quoakle office!
We would like to introduce to you all one of our clients, Diamond Books for Children! We have been helping them with Social Media as Carole, the lady behind the project, is quite new to it all. Here is an excerpt from her website so you can find out more about her : Diamond Books is the exciting Bible-based Reading Project that aims to develop in children a love for the Bible at the same time as helping them learn to read. Pioneered by UK Christian teacher, Carole Leah, Diamond Books seek to nourish children with Biblical resources bringing positive ideas into their lives as well as good role models to follow. The stories will delight 3-9 year olds with the antics of several modern day characters with whom they can relate. The vision of Diamond Books is to impart to children the knowledge of God's love and purpose for their lives - with every book being like a love letter from God to a child. She has launched several books for children as well! One being the Creation Series, as well as the Jesus Series. Her goals or "aims" are summed up nicely here : Aims. We look forward... Read More
