Well, how was it for you?

What did you do this Bank Holiday Weekend? It is the last one until Christmas so we hope it was a good one however you spent it.

An article in The Metro newspaper http://metro.co.uk/2014/08/21/bank-holidays-youre-doing-them-wrong-4823786/at the end of last week poked fun at the nation questioning why, after weeks spent working we would choose to spend a long weekend getting rained on, sitting in a traffic jam on the motorway. Or even, as it seems lately, throwing buckets of water over our heads in the name of raising awareness for charity.

So are we just gluttons for punishment? Here at Canopies by Acer the team’s Bank Holiday Weekend activities ranged from long lie-ins in bed to caravanning in Wales and watching our favourite local football teams get beaten at home.

Each to their own so why not let the newspapers can make fun. For us, it was a last minute chance to relax and get ready for September. Autumn has always been a crazy season for Canopies by Acer. Not only is it ‘Back to School’ season with new budgets but, it is also a time when clients are looking for canopies and shelters as the weather starts to draw in.

So as the days get shorter, darker and colder call us for a free site survey for a demonstration of what we do best – even if that it is not Bank Holidays!
