Jersey's Council of Ministers has proposed that Friday, May 8, 2020, be declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Jersey, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE-Day.
The aforementioned announcement of an additional non-working public holiday in Jersey, on May 8, 2020, if it came to pass, would amend the recently-announced (2019-06-05) list of official Jersey non-working public holidays and bank holidays in Jersey for the calendar year 2020, in line with previous announcements of the list of official public holidays in Jersey (2018-10-16, 2017-11-28, 2016-08-27, 2015-08-16, 2012-09-18, 2011-03-08 and 2011-01-20).
Recall that, last weekend (2019-06-08), the UK Business Secretary, Greg Clark, had announced the upcoming non-working UK early-May public holiday, in the UK, will move from Monday, May 4, 2020, to Friday, May 8, 2020, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE-Day.
