Savings or investing?

Savings rates are getting reasonable now and my investments aren't doing much. 

Wondering whether sticking money in a savings account is the best option at the moment. It's ok, I'm not considering taking the money from the investments yet! Talking about additional non invested cash.

So what would you do with £20000 ISA allowance this year - cash or S&S?

(Assuming no short term need for the cash but not looking at long term investment anyway - too old for that!)
