They say they’re more likely to live life in the moment following the pandemic, and (79 per cent want to make lots of plans while they can.

New research by Ealing Broadway reveals Ealing folk are planning to make the most of their summer, having missed out on almost a month of non-stop quality time with family and friends in the past year.

More than two thirds (36 per cent) put spending time with friends at the top of the list of things they’re going to enjoy the most, while a third looked forward to more days out.

Surprisingly, throwing a party (15 per cent) and seeing an unlimited group of people (10 per cent) are lower on the priority list.

Andrew Rollings, centre director at Ealing Broadway, said: “Our research shows our community is really gearing up to make up for lost time with loved ones.”
