Guernsey gets extra day's holiday for Queen's jubilee

Post by GD on Thu 28 Jul 2011, 10:16 pm

Guernsey will follow England and Wales in having an
additional public holiday in 2012 to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The States agreed to an additional public holiday on Tuesday, 5 June.

It also approved moving the May public holiday from Monday, 28 May to Monday,
4 June.

The Commerce and Employment Department said not following England and Wales
could be seen as "a personal snub to the Queen".

Culture and Leisure Minister Mike O'Hara called on the public to celebrate
the island's special link to the Crown during the jubilee year. (from BBC)

Be fair Thistle I am sure plenty of people will appreciate an extra days holiday whatever the reason. No skin off your nose is it, as you're not working anyway.

for your information kingcole i do work a few hours a week but what has that got to do with you .the extra day off is costing the employers a lot of money in these uncertain times.

OK OK keep your shirt on Thistle. Alright so you work a 'few hours' a week, you still should not let your personal dislike of the Royal family deny others the right to an occassional extra day off. Wink
