National bank holiday for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II State Funeral
Mon, 12 Sep 2022

Monday 19 September, the date of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's State Funeral, will be a national bank holiday.

This bank holiday will operate in the same way as other bank holidays, and council services will be provided in the same manner.

As you would expect our essential public services will continue on the Bank Holiday and our appreciation goes to all those who are working and unable to join the nation in commemorating the life of Her Majesty The Queen.

Please be aware schools and further education settings are not expected to remain open on the Bank Holiday. Normal attendance is expected throughout the National Mourning period, other than the Bank Holiday.

Further service specific information will be shared in due course. If you have any questions in the meantime, please discuss these with your manager.

Please be advised during the National Mourning period, in order to demonstrate our respect for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, public meetings of the council and committee meetings will be cancelled. This will take effect from Monday 12 September.
