    Number 10 Downing Street has approved a petition that was launched requesting a new public holiday falling on the Monday after
    Remembrance Sunday in November each year.

    To be known as the National Remembrance Holiday, it's got three aims:
    1. To emphasise the remembrance of those servicemen and women who have given, and continue to give, their lives for Britain
    2. To remind people of the importance of protecting our Nation and what it stands for;
    3. To break that 3 month period between the August Public Holiday and Christmas when there are currently no long weekends, especially as the UK has fewer public holidays than most European Countries.

    If you agree to the idea, please sign up to the petition - it doesn't take long - and it would be great if you were to forward the link to other people as well. This is not just about another bank holiday, but more importantly about having a designated day to remember all those people that sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

    THIS IS A NOTEABLE PETITION THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAVE ASKED FOR PLEASE SIGN IF YOU WANT AN EXTRA BANK HOLIDAY .
