Family members values

Lockdown, in accordance to the lads at Clayton Lodges, has led to us valuing loved ones much more. Seemingly, 95 for every cent of us feel that 3G holidays (that’s multigenerational to you and me) are exciting for all. Even though that does depart me stressing about the experiences of the other 5 for every cent, it is even now a very beloved-up statistic.

You can squabble about the figures afterwards.
