50% of Small Businesses Think St George’s Day Should be a Bank Holiday

A week after the event, 50% of small businesses surveyed have voted in favour of making St George’s Day a national bank holiday.

That was the finding of a survey conducted by Unicom, which specialises in telecoms and broadband services for small businesses, as Monday 23rd April passed by relatively unnoticed once again.

A cross section of owners and managers were asked: “Do you think that St George’s Day should be marked by a national bank holiday?”

Out of 272 respondents, 50% (136) said yes it should, whilst 31% (84) believe that it should not, and the remaining 19% (52) were unsure either way.

“Our findings support a previous survey we conducted after Easter to find out if small business owners would like more bank holidays generally – 53% of them said they would,” said Chris Earle, Operations Director of Unicom.

“Perhaps St George’s Day should be the first new holiday to be introduced to the calendar – it seems to go unnoticed and unrecognised most years, unlike the Irish holiday of St Patrick’s.”
