Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.
Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.
In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Hi there Hawkes Bay – fourteen people have signed up in response to my earlier notice - thank you.
We still need another 45 volunteers for HASTINGS. We need 21 for this weekend and 24 for 13-14 November.
Could you please give two hours of your time? The web site will close off later this week, so if you can help please comment below or PM me and I will contact you.
Also, please ask your friends and family to lend a helping hand – men are more than welcome – remember – men can get breast cancer too! Also you can bring your dog and / or your children / grandchildren.
I look forward to working with you all – in the pink: a scarf, a skirt, earrings, a whimsy, a wig, a t-shirt/jacket/jumper, pink feather boa, pink bowler hat – some / any / all of those!
Pink Ribbon Appeal Co-ordinator for Hastings
