    I'm organising another rideout - on Saturday 9 May - leaving Shrewsbury at 10am and going down to the Cross Gates near Rhayader, then on the A44 :D to Leominster, and back via Ludlow and Bridgnorth. It's a cracking ride, I did it last year the other way round - called it 'Marches Meander' (MM) so this is MM2.

    Details here:

    I think you're entitled to 25 days by law plus bank holidays.

    As for me I'm self employed so I can make the rules up as I go along (well as long as my business partner agrees). But I do think 6 weeks is fairly good.

    28 days as of 1st April this year if you work a five day week. This could include public holidays if you employer your employer is tight.

    Check it here
     
  12. I do get 6 weeks a year but i've 3 weeks left over from last year and 3 extra weeks for not leaving the army yet. Dunno when ill get it all in though. I wish the MOD would start paying out a days pay for any holiday not taken. I'd be able to get a 2009 model.
