Name tags review

Well there’s nothing like being prepared and with the summer holidays fast approaching, it’ll be back to school and its associated panic of uniform buying and shoe-gate, trainer-gate and got to have the right school bag-gate.

The importance of taking a holiday

The importance of taking a holiday! As mum, and owner of travel company, Bookings For You, specialising in organising villa holidays to Italy, France and Croatia, Jo Mackay knows better than most the benefits of taking that ‘proper break’ and booking time off from work.
