Official plans have been put forward for the States of Guernsey to debate whether to make changes to the May 2020 bank holidays to give islanders a longer weekend.

As Liberation Day 2020 falls on a weekend, islanders will currently not have their normal bank holiday.

Under the plans to be debated:

  • Monday 4 May 2020 will no longer be a public holiday.
  • Friday 8 May 2020 will be a public holiday.

The decision follows a similar announcement in the UK last month and will be debated in the Assembly later this month.
