Barbara Glucklich started this petition to Victorian Government and

What a doozy, another extended lockdown for Victorians. A double whammy as it will rob us of the last public holiday & long weekend before September's grand final long weekend. 

Due to ANZAC Day being on a Sunday in 2021 our last public holiday & long weekend was Easter. That means we will go nearly 6 months without a long weekend, from 4th April - 24th September, 2021.

Victorians are great at coming together to support each other through things like lockdowns and as we've shown in 2020, we will do the right thing and follow the public health orders for the greater benefit of our community and to keep our at risk individuals safe.

We ask that the government consider replacing this lost long weekend at another point after lockdown and within this 6 month period as a measure to support mental health & wellbeing, replace lost tourist dollars to regional areas and improve the economic wellbeing of businesses.

While the future date remains up in the air right now, giving us something to look forward to during this lockdown would be a wonderful thing to bring us together and give everyone a little bit of hope for our futures.

Sign and please share to others who might want to add their name to this idea.

Stay safe and stay well.
