The first of May is May Day, which marks the return of spring in the UK. The celebration of May Day goes back many years to the festival of Flora, the goddess of flowers and spring. We won’t be open on the 2nd May, as that is the Early May Bank Holiday.
Eid ul-Fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. During Ramadan Muslims fast during daylight hours. Eid ul-Fitr cannot begin until the new moon has been sighted and this was expected in the UK on the 1st May. To all our Muslim colleagues, patients and friends we wish you Eid Mubarak.
