    Plans for lord street

    Probably lose some more spaces when the Steam Packet parking goes.

    Hosepipe ban

    The law says you can. Restriction on use of hosepipes 20. (1) If the Authority is of opinion that there is or is likely to be a serious deficiency of water available for distribution by it, it may for such period as it thinks necessary, prohibit or restrict as respects the whole or any part of the Island the use for the purpose of watering private gardens or washing private motor cars of any water supplied by it and drawn through a hosepipe or similar apparatus. (2) In sub-paragraph (1) “private motor car” means a motor vehicle within the meaning of the Road Traffic Act 1985, other than — (a) a public passenger vehicle (within the meaning of the RoadTransport Act 2001);59 (b) a goods vehicle within the meaning of the said Act of 1985, and includes any vehicle drawn, by such a vehicle. (3) The Authority shall, before a prohibition or restriction under this paragraph comes into force, give public notice in 2 or more newspapers published and circulating within the Island of the date when it will come into force. (4) Any person who contravenes a prohibition or restriction in force under this paragraph shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding £1,000.

    Steam Packet Warns Of Disruption To Sailings

    This is the weather website some of the bridge crew use. http://www.xcweather.co.uk/forecast/heysham I tend to use the BBC weather app, but my wife always checks on that site

    MV Karina...

    Figured it must be something like that. Think our old stone built warehouse is tax exempt.

    It says tax exempt, not excl tax.

    TT2018 - entertainment, tents and that

    Think it’s a landlady from down north. Was talking to her last year sometime after the runaway Snaefell tram and she said her trade had just dropped off a cliff as a result. She came up with a loyalty card scheme to encourage return visits.

    TT2018 - entertainment, tents and that

    Ah, the Mines, my favourite little escape. Get a tram from Onchan with my annual pass to Laxey for an hour or so. Beer and either ham & cheese sandwiches, ploughman’s or kippers. Bloody lovely. Went yesterday afternoon and it was still packed.

    It would be good if they could compete in the World Cup like Gibraltar can.

    What's missing?

    Their menu was the biggest I’d ever seen. Must have all been frozen food.

    TT Fireworks

    How would you know? Thought someone did it a few years back.

    FIFA World Cup 2018

    It’s a pity the island isn’t allowed in. It could be good fun for the short time it lasts.
