It’s feet up for 29pc of folk!

A STAGGERING 29 per cent of Calderdale folk have combined Easter and the Royal Wedding to make a lengthy break from work.

Many booked three days’, holiday from Tuesday to Thursday this week, which gives them an 11-day break due to the bank holidays.

They finished last Thursday and had the two bank holidays over Easter followed by the Royal Wedding public holiday and the May Day bank holiday in addition to two weekends.

Around 11 per cent of companies in the UK have shut down this week and 56 per cent of people said getting holiday allocation between the bank holidays wasn’t an issue where they work.

But nine per cent of workers were blocked from taking time off, according to research from InvisibleHand.
