Winter Newsletter - South West & Wales

Written by: Elmtree Press

Welcome to the Winter edition of our newsletter, now we are all settled back in after the Christmas break why not take a bit of time to think ahead to better weather and getting out and about with your students. In our newsletter you will find some ideas of places for days out and trips away, some you will be familiar with but perhaps there is something different to inspire you.  Our Educational Visits Guide has just been printed for 2016 so if you would like a copy sending out please email info@elmtreepress.com or call 01677 427334.

Also remember that if you are thinking of your annual school trip for later this year or even next year, contact us and we can put together a bespoke trip to your requirements to take the pressure off - see our tailor made school trips page for further details here.
