It would appear that spring is finally here, leaves returning to trees, colourful blossoms sprouting, even parts of the A406 is strewn with rows of daffodils along its length.  Isn’t it wonderful to witness new beginnings, the course of nature bearing fruit; the same is true of the many businesses Schools Plus supports by hosting them across the UK over its 70 plus schools.  Many of our customers rely on the facilities at our schools to run their businesses, via our letting service, the schools are instrumental in supporting local businesses, thereby buoying up the local economy, keeping people employed and facilitating community cohesion.

Like the sprouting of the various blossoms in spring time, it is a joy to see a variety of local businesses blossom and thrive over time at our schools.  A new venture I have seen this year has been the concept of a fitness class using individual trampolines.  The single round trampoline is a feature present in many back gardens across the UK for children, but now the same concept is being applied to fitness as well as being great fun for grown ups.  Other fun fitness activities have evolved around dance, Zumba notably being the most popular, but also Salsa; one I’d really like to see and possibly learn is Bachata!  worth looking up if you have not come across it.

Schools Plus is in a very good position to help activity based businesses set up or expand via the facilities many of our schools boast; the dance studios in particular are increasingly popular due to the growth in interests in health via fun exercises and dance.  In addition we host many football academies, both indoor and outdoor facilities for football allow the academies to run training sessions throughout the year; summer camps are already being booked in now with many of our customers returning with even more subscribers.

Via this weekly blog we can help promote your business too, sometimes to the schools may also be happy to include your leaflet in the newsletter which goes out to parents.  Let us help you blossom this spring, look up our web site for schools near you for opportunities to help your business blossom.
