May Bank holiday fun in Andover

Good news is May here and this glorious month brings not one bank holiday but two.

The May bank holidays fall on the 3rd May and  31 May 2021

Bank holidays were launched by Liberal politician and banker Sir John Lubbock in 1871, it was introduced as a way of giving workers respite.
