The Long Summer Holidays
As we move into the high part of the summer, I tend to think back on family holidays of years gone by – those with my own family and when I was a boy. Of course, like last summer, this one, in all likelihood, is going to be very different for many people in the country. For one thing, there are not that many people who are even thinking about a foreign holiday this year. Although the world has started to return to something like normality with limited crowds attending big sporting events and so on, I see little appetite for overseas travel at the moment. This leads me to think that actually, the UK is a great place to enjoy a break.
In many ways, I’ve always thought this but the pandemic has probably made me appreciate the natural beauty of these islands even more. A few years ago I went on a holiday to the West Country with my family and have to say that Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Cumbria, Pembrokeshire and Dorset are all great places for a break. Of course, I know that they’re likely to be busier than ever once the school holidays kick and how great to rediscovering the delights of British tourism and making some memorable moments they’ll look back on for years. That’s what I think holidays should be all about anyway.
In our corner of the world, we have plenty to offer visitors, as well, not least Rutland Water and Lincolnshire which tends to be a big hit with tourists. And let’s face it who doesn’t love a good old trip to Skeg Vegas!
For those of us in the agricultural sector, taking a summer holiday to coincide with the end of the school year has always been tricky. Most of us are working flat out from May through to September depending on the weather. So, if you are considering a family holiday and think you won’t be able to take one this year, then why not talk to me about how we can help with manpower? The team at BTAC is ready to go with a range of services including our popular tractor and digger hire.
Why not book yourself time with the family, and let us do some of your work? After all, a British holiday is the way to go. Happy holidays!
