We are very pleased that the Society has decided to close for the whole day on Christmas Eve. With the way Christmas Day and Boxing Day holiday fall around a weekend, this will allow most employees to enjoy a five-day break. This is a very welcome gesture and recognition of the difficult circumstances that everyone has faced this year. Some essential services will still be required to operate on Christmas but employees impacted by this will be able to take time-off at another time. If you have holiday booked on Christmas Eve, this can be rearranged at another time.
