Wednesday 27th

Well the South Somerset & West Dorset edition of Suited and Booted has been put to bed. All being well it will be at your favourite venue in a few days.

Breaks 'disturbed by work calls'
Almost half of all holidaymakers have their break interrupted by calls from work, new research has shown.

A survey of 2,000 adults for Teletext Holidays found that one in four cannot switch off entirely from their job when they are on vacation.

Two out of five even feel guilty about taking time off, with women feeling more guilty than men.
Workers often stayed late in the week running up to a break to clear their in-tray, especially in London, the poll found.

Nishma Patel, managing director of Teletext Holidays, said: "Holidays are precious and should be a chance to get away from it all - and that includes work.

"However, our research shows that holidaymakers are finding it increasingly hard to achieve this because work either looms large or is on the phone.

"Bosses and workers should look to factor in plenty of hand-over time so that people can be left alone to enjoy their well-deserved break."

Teletext Holidays suggested that workers should leave their work mobile phone at home when they go on holiday and delegate work before leaving the office.

So what's happening locally today if you are not on holiday?
