'May Day' Bank Holiday to move?0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:08 pm

The nearest Monday to the 1st of May might be changing to the nearest Monday to the 1st of October.49untitled.jpg

The Government are considering plans to get rid of the May Day bank holiday and replace it with one in October instead. The October holiday, if decided on, could be called ‘Trafalgar Day’ or ‘UK Day’.

The possible move comes from the tourist industry saying that we need a better spread of public holidays across the year. John Penrose, the tourism minister, said that an autumn bank holiday would help the industry and also give us all a new focus for celebrating the things that make us a fantastic nation.

If it went ahead, the change would not take place before 2013. There are extra bank holidays this year and next to celebrate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton and the Queens Diamond Jubilee. The general secretary of TUC union said that the UK had the stingiest allocation of Bank Holidays in Europe and called for an extra public holiday instead.

I don’t like this because it would mean that we’d have a big old gap from January all the way through to October without a Bank Holiday besides Easter!
