New Year, new plans!

Ever the handy helpers at NewZapp HQ, we’ve drawn up a new check list of the key UK calendar dates for 2019 for you to refer to when planning your email campaigns and offers. No prizes for guessing which date Valentine’s Day falls on, but this handy helper shows movable dates like Chinese New Year, Pancake Day and Easter weekend.

Don’t worry there’s not a Brexit, backstop or transition date in sight. But you should know that Friday March 15th is the day to bring brownies to work and raise some money from hungry colleagues for the biennial Red Nose Day.
