August bank holiday gets the green light – 3FM

There will be a bank holiday on Friday, August 28.

The Council of Ministers confirmed this morning the Bank Holiday initially scheduled for Friday, June 12 has been moved to the end of August.

In a letter to Tynwald Members today, Treasury Minister Alf Cannan apologised for the poor communication.

He added  there are three core reasons for the decision – one of which is the date being far enough ahead, so some extended gatherings of family and friends could take place.

Minister Cannan recognised some people were upset with the manner in which this was communicated and has offered his sincere apologies.
