Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Johnny Kite's Rugby Coaching Sessions

This weekend we had Three Touring Teams take part in training sessions run by Johnny Kite with some help from director Chris Kite. Johnny is a great young athlete who has been a part of the Gloucester Academy since the age of 13. Through the years Johnny has received some really high level of coaching from people like; Former England and Gloucester full back Olly Morgan, Martin Johnson, Will Greenwood and Austin Healey. With all these high level coaches Johnny has been taking in the drills and thinking of ways to use them to also help him as a coach and a player. He Currently is studying at Hartpury College where he is studying for an extended diploma in sports excellence, this is helping him gain more knowledge and experience in coaching. This weekend he had two different training sessions with Doncaster RFC U12's and Tring RFC U13's where he ran a mixture of different drills and then making sure that these skills picked up were then taken into a game situation.
