I was both delighted and privileged last week along with my wife to be given a, V.I.P. tour of West Midland Safari Park. Arranged by the lovely Sue Day and guided by one of their excellent VIP Guides Dave Higgins. We were given an insight into what goes on behind the scenes before the park opens to the general public, along with the opportunity to feed the Rhino's, Giraffes, Lemurs and best of all the Cheetahs.

The Sound of Music Christmas parties have finished and we are very sad to see them come to an end for another year. Great fun was had by all who attended and we are thoroughly looking forward to the Greatdays Music Hall in the summer as well as next year's Christmas parties, which have the glamorous theme of Puttin' On The Ritz.
The Day Trips department recently spent some time in Shropshire visiting some fantastic venues for the new 2013 day trips brochures. A new venue we are particularly excited about is Acton Scott Victorian Farm, where you can see some of the attractions that have featured in the BBC TV programme, such as the converted WWII vehicle parked in the car park, and enjoy morning refreshments.
Waking up in the middle of the night, looking outside my bedroom window, I was greeted by a cold, wet, dark morning. It would have been so easy to jump back in bed, but knowing we, that is David Shenton, my colleague and Alty were on our way to Berlin only enhanced the enthusiasm I felt, despite the dismal weather!!
The Day Trips Department spent a few sunny days on the south coast of England visiting some of the fantastic new venues we have in our 2013 South East Brochure.
