NEWTS week 2019 Advance Notice

After the hugely successful Newts Week 2018 we have been asked to confirm the date for 2019 so people can organise their holiday plans.

In 2019 Newts Week will be the week commencing Monday the 22 July. This is the first week of the school summer holidays, although the schools do not officially finish until the Monday; we anticipate however as in previous instances, that the Monday will be an INSET day.

So please put the date in your diaries and we will be posting more news in the new year along with general training course dates.
