Spring Newsletter 2017 - Yorkshire & North East

Written by: Elmtree Press

Welcome to the Spring edition of our newsletter - now we are all back in the thick of things after Easter and getting ready for another half-term why not take a look at what's happening over the break and into the next few months in the run up to, and during the Summer holidays.  Many of our advertisers have included details of special events for half-term or information on what's available for school visits so you're sure to find something that will be of interest.

Now is also a great time to think about your annual school trip for 2018 as accommodation gets booked up so far in advance, so get in touch and we can put together a bespoke school trip to your requirements to take the pressure off.  See our tailor made school trips page  or check out our blog for some inspiration.

You should have received a copy of our Educational Visits Guide a few months ago but  if you didn't receive a copy or would like more, please get in touch with us here and we'll happily post some out to you.

Go Yorkshire Mini Guide
Finally, we also produce a mini guide for Yorkshire which includes discount vouchers so if you would like to receive copies for your school please get in touch here. You can either order just one copy to see what's included or if you are already familiar with the guide, order enough for one for each of your students.
