Will you get

to go on holiday this summer

?

"Because it has been so quiet I'm taking a full week off for the first time in three years.

I'm the cult of the Jolly Vintner and customers expect to see me . When I disappear turnover drops dramatically."

Rory Stapleton

The Jolly Vintner, Tiverton

Devon

" It's only myself and my husband running the shop and it's our fourth year of trading. We get one day off a year - Christmas

Day. But it's part of our plan for the future . We're planning on early retirement."

Jan Hancock

Rob & Jan's Off -licence

Boston, Lincs

" Usually I get away at some point in the summer but getting the staff is tough this year. I'm planning a winter holiday when it's quieter

."

Taher Hanzet

Hops & Grapes , Southampton

" We normally do get a chance to get away.

I've got people I can trust to look after the shop

which is lucky."

Sunjit Bains

Bains Liquor Store, Windsor, Berks
