Men of Harlech Bike Ride – Day Three – A Blog by Howard Burge

After completing the 2016 Men of Harlech Tour (and not learning my lesson) I was still keen to sign up for the 2017 event. But…this year I was going to be prepared. I was going to take my commitment as a well-oiled* sportsman seriously, no injuries, no unnecessary aches. After reaching Aberystwyth and resting with my fellow cyclists, day two was going to need a little more care. Another 80 miles and a further 6,000 feet of peddling up and down hills – I chose a more professional approach than an ice cream – I opted for an ice bath. I had read about cold therapy, about how immersing my […]

Men of Harlech Bike Ride – Day Two – A Blog by Howard Burge

So the first day came to an end. Our three days of cycling taking in 190 miles and 10,000 feet of climbing hills and steep inclines has commenced in earnest…and doesn’t my derriere know about it… As we stopped to take in the views of Harlech and the mighty castle after departing from the very pretty Porthmadog, I was beginning to feel the wrath of every serious* cyclist – the saddle sore. Of course we are a team of seasoned professionals, and whilst some of the tips offered for treating it are quite frankly unprintable – the spirit of our community as the men (and women) of Harlech […]

Men of Harlech Bike Ride – Day One – A Blog by Howard Burge

Twelve months on and here we are again – the men (and women) of Harlech are set to cycle across Wales in a bid to raise funds and awareness for the Cardiff City Community Foundation. Last year New Directions Education got involved for the first time with the project. Physically, one would have thought I had learned my lesson. It was utterly exhausting. Mentally, it was a really exceptional challenge. But, I chose to take part again and I want to explain why… The Cardiff City Community Foundation changes lives. The impact the work of the charity aligned to Cardiff City Football Club is […]

So you are considering a career in supply teaching…

…a blog by Chloe Evans, Account Manager, New Directions Education The academic year is set to draw to a close once more, how quickly the time has passed since September 16’, though I am not sure how many of those who work in classrooms up and down the UK would agree. Our teams work throughout the calendar year, of course we do get some ‘down time’ where we re-charge our batteries ready for the phones to start ringing off the hook again in September. But…July and August is our time to re-group and make sure our service is ‘match-fit’ for the autumn term ahead and beyond. One […]
