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

Mini Rugby Tour to Bournemouth

Aylesford Bulls took nearly 280 to the Bournemouth Rugby Festival & Oakmeadians Rugby Festival, which consisted of all of their mini age groups from U7s to U12s. It was a massive undertaking by the club, but one which definitely paid off with a fantastic weekend had by all!

The team were based in Holiday Park accommodation where they were able to enjoy the various on site activities such as swimming, tennis and crazy golf.

The group arrived on the Friday and had a chance to check in and unpack before we welcomed their coaches and tour organiser, Vanessa, to our Reception Party. It was lovely to meet them all, especially after all the hard work they had put into getting so many people on tour.

The following day their teams travelled to Oakmeadians Rugby Club to compete in a full day of rugby. For the mini event we awarded the spirit of rugby award for teams that demonstrated a great team spirit, played fairly and hard fun. It was testament to Aylesford, their coaches and players, that their teams won the majority of these awards.

That evening all the teams enjoyed the Holiday Parks evening entertainment where there was live music and some great fancy dress. The next morning they headed to Bournemouth RFC to play in the Bournemouth Festival. This was another great day of rugby, with some gorgeous weather!
