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!

Easter Greetings

What better way to start the Easter Holidays with wishing all of our clients and the people who have worked with us over the years, a very happy, peaceful Easter!Let's also remember why we celebrate this special time of the year...Easter, the principal festival of the Christian church year, celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his Crucifixion. The origins of Easter date to the beginnings of Christianity, and it is probably the oldest Christian observance after the Sabbath (observed on Saturday).

A New Year beckons…

Well, didn't 2016 go fast? Where does the time go?We are slowly picking up from where we left off. One of our goals this year is to see Great Days Out perform better on the Google rankings. It does seem that Google like to change the goal posts from time to time and it does leave us second guessing as to why certain key word phrases don't appear as high as they should on Google's listings. Be assured we are doing all that we can to rectify this ongoing battle!We are also hoping that the Quoakle directory will have gone through it's complete transformation at some point during this year! Tim Coysh has been able to do a bit of work when he has been able to carve out some time. He keeps us up-to-date. We can't confirm when the new website will be live, but we are leaving it in Tim's capable hands and we will let you know when it is the finished article!So, it is onwards and upwards! We wish you all a prosperous and inspiring 2017!
