Why would the staff need more pay today? It's a regular working day not a bank holiday.

"yanbu as long as you don't might paying double so that the staff get more pay"

New year's eve is a normal office hours working day... I am off today because I booked it as a day's holiday, but the office is open and other people are working. I wouldn't be getting extra pay to be there today.


I don't think anyone is suggesting that the pools and leisure centres should be open on Christmas day for a festive dip or at midnight on new year so that folk can sup champagne whilst on the treadmill - just expressing surprise and disappointment that they are closed on days that are normal working days for other people.

My gym and pool were closed today. I don't think many people would've gone anyway, so I don't think it's a huge deal.

If you were going to close for a week to do repairs etc, it would be this week.

Some people will be annoyed, but less people than if you chose another week.
