Easter bank holiday is nearly upon us and there’s no better time to get your life in order. Whether you treat yourself to a much-needed break or decide to redecorate the house – the world is your oyster. Now many of us have adjusted to life with the COVID-19 virus, everything is back up and running. So, it’s time to plan ahead and not waste a minute. Need some ideas on how to spend your bank holiday? Look no further.
Redecorate your home
Keeping on top of those pesky home improvements can be tough, especially if you work full time. However, the longer you leave them, the more you begin to resent your home. So, to get things back on track, why not use your bank holiday for some home improvements? You might have structural changes in mind and there’s no better time to get started. However, be sure to assess your financial situation before taking on large projects. If you’re planning a small-scale project, just grab a paintbrush and away you go. A fresh lick of paint goes a long way when trying to rejuvenate your home.
Visit the seaside
The novelty of a trip to the coast never wears off, no matter what your age. So, what better way to spend your bank holiday than being beside the seaside? If you fancy a minibreak, why not spend the whole weekend there? With plenty of campsites, BnBs and hotels on offer, you’re spoilt for choice. Alternatively, the beach is the perfect place for a day trip. Take a walk along the beach, grab some fish and chips and soak in all the goodness of the UK seaside. And, if you’re feeling brave, take to the choppy waters to try your hand at surfing!
Support local businesses
If you don’t have time to go away for the weekend, but still want to treat yourself – try looking a bit closer to home. Whilst the UK has returned to a new normal, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic still live on for many small businesses. Local pubs, bars, cafes, and restaurants all took a huge hit during the pandemic and are still trying to recover. Making the most of the nearby hospitality sector, you’ll treat yourself to a meal out whilst helping boost the local economy.
If you’ve got children, local farms and activities centres are a great option to keep everyone entertained during the bank holiday. Sit back and relax as you watch your children have the time of their lives.
