Bank holiday fun

Whilst the summer has sped by and autumn approaches, let’s make this last bank holiday of the year count with doing something a little different this year.

Whether you’ve had a quiet or a busy summer with or without family, instead of playing host to family and friends this bank holiday, MOLLY MAID suggest undertaking some new adventures for your bank holiday fun. Who knows it may even turn into a new hobby for you!

  • Fishing: Pack up some sandwiches, prepare a picnic and borrow a rod or two and of you go. Remember to dress appropriately for spending a few hours in peace and quiet along the riverbank. Whether you catch anything or not, fishing can be a tremendously relaxing, fun and bonding moment for the family. It’s also a terrific excuse for banning all electronics for a few hours!
  • Rowing boat: Row, row, row your boat gently down the river… If you are closely located to river or a lake, take the opportunity to take the family to the water and hire a rowing boat. This can be everything from romantic for couples to a fun family activity where everyone can try their hand at rowing. It’s a good idea to pack blankets and a picnic to keep everyone happy.
  • Narrowboats: Instead of putting yourself through the trials and tribulations of camping, why not hire a canal boat for the day, or even for the week-end. There are plenty of water ways in the UK for you to have fun and experience a week-end of boating in a civilised fashion which is comfortable for all to enjoy. See waterwaysholidays.com for more information.
  • Cultivate an Allotments: Do you fancy the idea of growing your own fruit and vegetables? Why not take the chance to cultivate an allotment this bank holiday with the family. Over the years, the popularity of allotments has risen and people have realised that it can be immensely enjoyable and satisfying to grow your own produce. It’s a fantastic way of getting a family outdoors and teaching them how our food is produced. To start an allotment, contact your local council for a space.

Have fun this bank holiday!
