Me but that’s the nice part of being a pensioner ;0)
By luck I'm rostered off that day.
Given the average age profile of AB users, I doubt that there will be many people here who'd normally be working on June 2nd anyway.

i suspect that some people who've been given the day off by their employers though might not actually want it. If an employee's contract states "28 days holiday per year, inclusive of public holidays" he or she would normally have 8 'fixed' holidays and 20 days to play with in agreement with the employer. If an extra public holiday is given, he/she will end up with 9 'fixed' days and only 19 'flexible' ones, which might result in the messing up his/her usual holiday plans!
We’ve got Thursday and Friday off!

Whats the average age profile Chris ?
I have Thursday and Friday off as does my husband
I was at the doctor's today and spoke to one of the staff wishing them a lovely long weekend. The woman replied that they were having Pimms on the lawn after the surgery closes for the long weekend. She was looking forward to getting "anaesthetised".

I had my annual check up for COPD at the beginning of this week, via phone call, (I did brilliantly on the breathing tests). I last had a check up in 2018 as my next one was cancelled due to staff illness (pre-Covid). Just hope the ancillary staff at the surgery didn't have to wait that long for their invite ;)
Good news re your tests Choux
Choux so very pleased for you xx
We have Thursday and Friday off, I thought everyone did who gets public holidays - bearing in mind we would normally have next Monday (late May hol, once upon a time Whitsun) off and it's been swappped to Thursday.
Sons at his dad's next week so I'll be going into the office Mon-Weds then off for the BHs.
2nd June off? Parliament started their 'Platinum Bank Holiday' at close of business 26 May, seems any excuse for a recess!
When I was working (seems a long time ago now), I always had Bank Holidays off, but this was office work and I did 9 to 5 with an hour for lunch ! I guess it will be different for shift workers.

As far as I'm aware employers don't have to observe this BH as they do the others .

They can treat it as a normal day
>>> employers don't have to observe this BH as they do the others

Unless an employee works in financial services (when the provisions of the Banking Acts come into play in respect of bank holidays), no employer ever has to take any notice whatsoever of any public holidays. For example, if Christmas Day falls on a day that an employee would normally be working, his/her employer has every right to demand that they work on that day and without any additional pay either.

Chris - are you going to answer mine at @1827?
I've never got my calculator out and reviewed all of the ages that people say they are, in order to work out an average, Baz but the majority of people here seem to be over 60, with many being 70+ or even 80+.

I've no real idea why that should be though. Perhaps younger people feel that they know everything (or that they know how to use Google to its best advantage) and therefore have no need of a Q&A site in their lives?
Apart from guessing I don't think anyone can answer that correctly. No-one gives any info on their age or date of birth to join here. It's only posters who refer to their age in posts and many don't.
Don’t understand why Prudie :0/
^^^ Many though repeatedly make it clear that they're retired though, Prudie.
