Why Gelato Village has given its staff a day off for Bank Holiday Monday

It’s pretty standard to see a queue of people eager for gelato in St Martin’s Square on a sunny day.

But if you were planning a trip to Gelato Village today to fill your hot weather treat craving you might be surprised to hear it is closed.

A sunny day is guaranteed to bring a crowd of gelato lovers but the business has decided to put its staff first and give them bank holiday Monday off.

The gelato business, which opened in 2014, will not re-open until 11am tomorrow to give its staff a well-earned rest.
