Jersey May 11 Public Holiday Ruled-Out

The Jersey Council of Ministers has confirmed that it would also not ask the States of Jersey for an additional non-working public holiday in Jersey on May 11, 2015, to compensate the fact that the 70th anniversary of the end of Jersey's WW2 occupation falls on a Saturday this year.

Recall that, the last time the Jersey annual non-working public holiday for Liberation Day fell on a Saturday, in 2010, a similar call to declare Monday, May 11, 2010, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Jersey, was defeated, despite multiple and last-minute efforts (20-Dec-2009, 03-Feb-2010, 15-Feb-2010, 27-Feb-2010 and 25-Mar-2010).

In related news, last autumn (19-Nov-2014), Guernsey's governmental department of Commerce and Employment and Culture and Leisure had stated that it had no plans to declare May 10, 2015, as an additional, one-off non-working public holiday to compensate the fact that the 70th anniversary of Guernsey's liberation will fall, once again, on a weekend, as was the case 5 years ago (07-Mar-2010) when the day after Liberation Day public holiday, Monday, May 10th, 2010, was declared an additional official public holiday in Guernsey (11-Sep-2009).
