Armed Forces Day - Report

Written by

It was nice to see the bands on the island co-operating on Sunday 29th June and coming together to help commemorate Armed Forces Day. Players from Castletown Metropolitan, Rushen Silver, Ramsey Town and the Manx Youth Band combined together to lead the parade of 150 veterans and 40 serving personnel along Douglas Promenade from Regents Street to the Villa Marina. It was also good to see a large crowd lining the route.

Written by

Well, the Weathermen got that wrong! They'd originally said the weather this afternoon would have been fine, meaning that it would be a pleasant day at Laa Columb Killey in Ballabeg. Unfortunately it rained, although it was fairly light rain, it was definately rain.

Mooragh Park

Written by

 

What can beat sitting in the park having an ice cream, with people out on the boating lake, kids playing in the paddling pool, and the sounds of a brass band wafting through the air?
