Petition For a November Bank Holiday January 24, 2008

Number 10 Downing Street has approved a petition that was launched requesting a new public holiday falling on the Monday after Remembrance Sunday in November each year. This would be known as the National Remembrance Holiday.

It’s got three aims:

  1. To emphasise the remembrance of those servicemen and women who have given, and continue to give, their lives for Britain
  2. To remind people of the importance of protecting our Nation and
    what it stands for;
  3. To break that 3 month period between the August Public Holiday and Christmas when there are currently no long weekends, especially as the
    UK has fewer public holidays than most European Countries.

If you agree to the idea, you can sign up to the petition online – it doesn’t
take long. Just visit http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/remembermonday/ and follow the instructions.
