Anguilla Set To Generalize March 2 As Public Holiday

Anguilla's recently elected Chief Minister, Hubert Hughes, has announced that the birthday of James Ronald Webster, on March 2nd, would henceforth be a full-fledged public holiday in Anguilla.

The March 2nd birthday of James Ronald Webster was set to become a new public holiday, beginning in 2008, but a last-minute motion in the legislature downgraded it to a school holiday only (25-May-2007).

Chief Minister Hughes' party, the AUM (Anguilla United Movement) had berated the outgoing government for only offering a school holiday in honour of the man called the "Father of the Nation".

As an interesting aside, today is a public holiday in Anguilla, as one of the first steps taken by Chief Minister Designate Hubert Hughes after his election, was to declare a post-election public holiday (16-Feb-2010).
