    How to Make the Most of Your Spring Bank Holiday

    What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when it comes to Springtime - blooming blossoms, fragrant flowers, longer days, or the SPRING BANK HOLIDAY? Traditionally, the holiday is celebrated on the last Monday in May. Why not prepare for the holiday properly this year to make the most of this well-deserved break after Easter?

    A cosy corner for everyone

    By the time we get to May, the weather is starting to get a lot better. Finally. It's time we should go outdoors more to enjoy the days with friends and family. Your back garden would be a nice place to start with, wouldn't it? Not only is spending meaningful time with family good for the mental well-being of everyone, but it is also great for children’s development as they get the sense of being valued. Let’s start by creating a comfy corner with a Goldcoast Single Swing. Equipped with soft padded cushions for extra comfort, this swing seat fits in every back garden easily with its contemporary design.

    If you’re looking to have a nice catch-up with your loved ones more privately, Newmarket Swing would come in handy. This swinging chair has two seats that you can share with someone special. It’s the perfect place to create fond memories or have private chats. It is also highly durable with a strong powder-coated steel frame, it’s perfect for children.

    Fun, laughter and memories

    What about a little backyard picnic? No matter who you have in mind, we have you covered. There are loads of great garden tables and benches available for eating outdoors during the Spring Bank Holiday. Should you fancy a little real-life MasterChef episode with your kids, children’s tables and benches are also a good idea. You can make some sandwiches and light snacks, so there’s nothing to think about but enjoying the weather and the company. Is there a better way to spend an afternoon?

    Prepare for the sun

    Although the weather is usually nice and bright in May, don’t forget that overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) light could be harmful to your skin. One of the hassle-free ways to stay safe is to make sure that you have parasols wherever they are needed. Sometimes, you need a shady spot to keep out of the sun, and it can be a great place to hang out and chat.

    Finish your day in the best possible way

    If you get the chance to get a bit of sun on your skin and unwind, take it. A decent sun lounger gives you a little break if you want to chill for a bit when the children are having fun. It would make a nice spot for reading if you want some "me" time during the bank holiday as well. Sun loungers are available with or without a side table. However, it is a highly recommended option, so you don’t have to move for as long as possible. The Meghan Five Piece Reclining Lounge Set comes with a natural rattan finish, weatherproof cushions and a charming side table with an elegant glass top. Books, newspapers or drinks are all within your reach. Perfect!

    The Spring Bank Holiday could be easily lost and forgotten as it follows a long Easter holiday. However, our advice is to enjoy both! Make the best use of the time and catch your breath in the middle of the year!
