Easter has only just begun

Eastr imageOn Easter Sunday I wished my local newsagent Happy Easter to which they replied "there is only one day left".  When I responded it had only just begun the look I received suggested they thought I was on a different planet.  Well the good news is not only am I not on different planet, but even when the longest series of school Easter holidays in living memory come to an end in late April, there will still be over a week of Easter left.  Plenty of time for new beginnings and to justify having a bit more chocolate!  After all having spent the 46 days of Lent preparing it is worth making the most of the 40 days of Easter.

Budget Blues

9550955-Magician-with-magic-wand-with-two-rabbits-in-a-top-hat-Stock-PhotoOn Wednesday 16th March George Osborne will seek to pull rabbits out of the hat as he tries to balance the nations budget.  The best Chancellors have all been very adept conjurers.

Our TPM service does not require any conjuring trick it simply offers best value, low prices and helps schools keep building costs within budget.

Over 80% of schools get money back

We have just completed our statements for schools to provide them with the information they need to prepare end of year accounts and budget for next year.  We estimate that over 80% of schools will have spent less in the last financial year than we estimated at the beginning of the year they will therefore be getting money back.  The TPM4Schools scheme has been passing in year savings back to schools for over 15 years.
