Found the answer myself ~ sorry ! but answer may be of help to others

The period of 14 days does not include Saturdays, Sundays, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Good Friday, a Bank Holiday and any day of Public Thanksgiving or Mourning   The period within which a poll may be claimed begins with the date given on the notice
