Petition Create a one off Bank Holiday on Monday June 21st 2021.
We'd like the government to create a one off Bank Holiday, to be known as Merriweather Day, on Monday June 21st 2021 as an opportunity for families and friends to come together.
COVID19 has negatively impacted people and families up and down the length of the country in many different ways not least their ability to come together. We've seen family celebrations at Eid, amongst others, cancelled and it looks likely Christmas will be the same. This proposed bank holiday would help families and friends of all faiths and none to come together to celebrate. We've chosen the longest day of the year as it provides for the most opportunities to be outdoors in a COVID19 safe way
