Page 7: PGL Action Holiday Advert

The advert is set up as a comic strip about Sally and John. One night in winter they are bugging their Dad to let them go on holiday alone with PGL. That summer they go off on the holiday and we get to see all of the different tasks they do. Windsurfing, Horse Riding, Sailing, Tennis, Judo, Fencing, Karting, Canoeing, Archery and writing a computer program. That evening at the disco they're saying how much they enjoyed themselves.

We're then told not to miss out, and are given a coupon to send off more more information, and even a second half of the coupon for a friend's address.
