The holiday season is upon us and I’m sure many of us are looking forward to a break away from work, spending time with family and friends.  Whether you’ve planned a trip abroad, a stay away in the UK or are just chilling at home, the East Leake Traders can help you prepare for and enjoy your Summer holiday this year.

If you are jetting away to somewhere hot, you’ll need to make sure you’ve got foreign currency, travel insurance and up-to-date passport sorted well before the date of travel.  The Post Office offers a one-stop-shop for these holiday essentials, right here in the village, and if you need a new passport photo, Captcha Photography is just across the road.

For those planning to use the caravan or motorhome, Costock Caravans Service on West Leake Road are authorised to service and repair all makes and models, ensuring your vehicle is ready to roll.

To help you get yourself and your family holiday-ready, check out these Traders: Core Aquatics provide swimming lessons so you can all enjoy the pool; Claudia’s Hair or Cut n Curl will get you looking your best; Slimming World offers supported weight loss if you’re struggling to get into the holiday shorts; Chris Hall Golf can help improve your game if you’re heading out on a golfing holiday.

Looking to improve your fitness ready for the holiday season?  Formula 4 Fitness, Lisa Twombley and Physioneeds offer strengthening, toning and general fitness sessions for all ages and abilities.

For those of us staying at home for the summer, maybe meeting up with friends, there are plenty of places for coffee, lunch, dinner or a relaxing drink:  Bryers, Cottage Restaurant, The Rushcliffe Golf Club, The Nags Head, The Three Horseshoes, The Round RobbInn, Love and Piste.

Whatever your plans, we wish you a memorable holiday.  And if you want to capture those special moments, don’t forget Captcha Photography can print off your digital photos for lasting memories.

Have a great summer!
