Found out last week that the early May bank holiday has been moved from Monday 4 May to Friday 8 May. This is to allow for a three day commemoration of VE day.

Searched the forum but could not find any previous mention so sorry if I missed an earlier post on the subject.

Most diaries and calendars will have been printed before the change was announced.

My Google calendar is still showing the old date.

There was something on the news about it a couple of months ago. One calendar company had to reprint that page and then insert the new page by hand. There were also people moaning, rightly in my opinion, that they had planned weddings for the original date. They weren't saying it shouldn't be commemorated, just that it had been left very late to change it.
