Independents Day: Weekend Workers

This months Independents Day falls at the weekend and I was unsure if All About the Boys would be taking the day off – she isn’t in recognition of the many independent business owners who work seven days a week. So for this post I thought I would think about the small businesses that I know of who definitely work on Sundays.

Family Farm Holidays CornwallThe first people who spring to mind are Fiona and her family at Coombe Mill it doesn’t matter what day of the week it is (or indeed what the weather is doing) if you are running a farm because the animals need feeding no matter what and when you are running a holiday cottage business the guests need looking after even on the weekends (I believe Saturday is her busiest day as changeover day but I’m sure she is pretty busy on Sunday’s too).

The other people who often work weekends are those who run activities or parties aimed at school children so two more of this months Independents Day businesses are Act One Parties and Les Enfants.

I know that Natalie at Precious Parcels (which sells lovely personalised homeware and gifts) works on Sunday’s too because she has a weekly special Sunday sale on her facebook page. And last but not least a business owner that I have admired for a long time – Natasha from Stork Gifts who’s shop is open seven days a week selling excellent quality items – from clothing to toys and from keep sakes to nursery decor – for babies and children.

And of course Theo Paphitis encourages all small business owners to work just for a short time on Sunday evenings with his #SBS competition – maybe I will win this week!
