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 The Wimborne Mini Rugby Festival

The players of Minchinhampton RFC U9 and U11 sides departed for their rugby tour to the South Coast in high spirits. While on tour they enjoyed spending time on their holiday park with numerous activities including swimming, a play area and amusements to keep the boys busy while enabling the parents and coaches to relax and enjoy the touring experience!

Wimborne Rugby Festival

On their first day of rugby the boys participated in the Wimborne Mini Rugby Festival. This combined a friendly atmosphere with some competitive rugby and everyone commented on the spirit in which the rugby was played. Special mention must go to the Minchinhampton U9 side who emerged victorious in their age group.

The group then enjoyed a trip along the coast for their second day of rugby during their tour and played some high quality rugby against their hosts producing some close fought matches. They were then treated to some wonderful hospitality and tour games. In the afternoon the group also had the opportunity to visit Paultons Park, a theme park close to Southampton should they wish to enjoy something different.

Everyone in the group commented on how much they enjoyed their tour and will be looking to continue enjoying rugby tours for years to come!
