Did you take your Mum out for Sunday lunch for Mother’s Day?
Personally, I failed this year and resorted to sending flowers ordered online, but when I used to live closer to my parents in times gone by, a family lunch at one of our local country pubs was always a winner.
We’d rarely venture into any of our local town centres to celebrate the day – being country bumpkins, the thought didn’t even cross our minds. I reckon I’m not alone in this tradition, but I’m curious to know if this is a wider trend that can be measured. In simplistic terms, I’d expect ‘urban’ footfall to decrease on Mother’s Day itself, and for quaint rural locations to benefit.
