  1. We're in the process of looking at nurserys on the Island, and I was wondering if anyone had children in the Little Darlings Nursery in Hutchinson Square, Douglas? The website looks great, and we're going to have a look round the place in a few weeks, but first hand reviews are always handy!
  2. Hi, Apologies if this has already been covered in another topic, I did a search on the forum but couldn't find any threads. I'm looking to book a table at JAR for my Parents 30th wedding anniversary, the menu they have online looks pretty good but rather ominously there are no prices attached.... Has anyone been there recently and can give me a ballpark idea of an average price of a meal there? There'll be 5 of us, I'd imagine the majority of us will have 2 courses with maybe the greedier of us managing a dessert as well. Any reviews of the restaurant as a whole would be welcome
  3. Hi, I've heard rumours of a wedding fair at the hop Garden at some point, but can't find anything listed anywhere and no one there is answering the phone at the moment. Has anyone heard anything about it?
  4. Thats the number I've been trying, not sure if anyone is there as I've been trying since Friday.
  5. Does anyone know of any dentists over here taking new NHS patients on? I've been ringing Crookall House constantly for the last few days with no luck, and any dentist I've managed to get through to so far has said they're not patients on and can't point me in the right direction. Cheers! D
  6. I've read that one, I was looking to find out a list of channels you get as standard over here, rather than read about the issues some people are having with a few select channels .
  7. Does anyone here currently have freeview, and if so what channels do you receive? I know the IOM does not get all the freeview channels currently but I'm just wondering if its still worth the money to buy it?
  8. Ahh good to know Must have just been the typical IOM rumour mill cranking out another story, I've been up there a few times this year and the food was always great so it did seem a bit strange. Thanks!
  9. Just heard a rumour The Hop Garden has changed management yet again, and the reports of the food at present aren't the best... Anyone know if this is true? I'm only worried because my wedding reception is due to be held there in a few months and I'm getting a bit worried!! Unfortunately no one there seems to be answering any messages. Does anyone know if there are indeed new people there or if Mikey and his Wife are still looking after things? If it has changed, has anyone been there recently and could comment on the standard of food now?
  10. Matching coffee table and side table, silver curved metal frame and glass top. Very good condition, regretted sale due to house move. £60 ono, or can be sold separately for £40 (coffee table) and £20 (side table). PM for pictures and measurements, buyer collects.
  11. Due to a house move in 6 weeks I have the following I'm looking to sell: Dark wood dining table and 4 upholstered chairs. Good condition, available now, £50 ono. Stand alone Electrolux Inspire fridge freezer (fridge at top, 3 drawer frost-free freezer at bottom) Brita water filter integrated into fridge door, with 4 litre water container on inside of door & dispenser on outside. Dimensions are H - 6ft 1, W - 2ft, D - 2ft. Very good condition (bought for £400 from MEA just under 2 years ago), £250 ono. Only available from 18th March, but thought I would advertise it from now an
  12. The ceremony is in the Catholic church on Prospect Hill (St Mary's) and I was advised about the marriage classes by the Secretary when we booked it last year. I know a few friends who have been to them for CoE weddings, I was just wondering if we should expect anything different for a Catholic class really.
  13. I know this will probably just cause a heated discussion over religion v atheism instead, but have any forum members attended the marriage classes run by the Islands Catholic Churches? We haven't been given an awful lot of information about them and I was just wondering what to expect! I know sometimes they are run as a series of 1 hour classes over a few weeks, and sometimes its one day-long class but apart from that we know nothing. Any tales to tell or warnings to give?!
  14. Probably going off on a slight tangent what with the way this thread has gone..... but I have to say I couldn't be happier with whats happened to this guy, and I agree with one earlier poster who said it couldn't have happened to a more deserving person. I've had 2 ops by Mr Hoehmann and the whole thing was a nightmare from start to finish. Both ops were paid for by my Employer through AXA PPP (total amount for both approx £15k) and at least every other bill was chased for 'late payment' when I had clear monthly statements from AXA confirming exact dates each one was paid. His secretar

    Agree with above - both Jaks and The Highlander do amazing steaks
  16. We've just bought a year long policy with C Tarleton Hodgson & Son Ltd in Douglas and they seem really good, its the first time I've used them but my Parents get their travel insurance from them all the time and they were great when my Dad was stuck in Spain due to the volcanic ash a few months ago, they couldn't have been more helpful and they automatically extended the policy as it was due to run out before he could get back. Its cost us £170 for the year long worldwide policy (to cover USA & Mexico trips) but we're both asthmatic so that could be why its a bit pricey...
  17. Very enjoyable last gig on the IOM from the lads, even with 2 drunken patrons heckling from the front....
  18. You're quite new round these parts, aren't you? Yeah, guess I'll know better from now on?! Just to say, I went to the class last night and oh. my. god. Guess its no pain no gain though right??! Although the 2 blokes stood in the corner watching a group of girls (and one solitary lad) being put through their paces was a bit offputting
  19. Ok this thread took a random turn that I wasn't quite expecting..... However the post above was quite helpful, so cheers
  20. I'm looking for a kettlebells class to do during the week and I was wondering if anyone has any reviews for the class at Ellan Vannin, or any general reviews of the place?
  21. Does anyone have a link to the road closure times for this week?
  22. Dark green Citroen Saxo VTS 1997, needs minor repairs (inc. new wing mirror). It was lowered by the previous owner, who added Magnex exhaust & Bilsten suspension. Would make good rally car, 60k miles on clock. Taxed until Oct 2010. Pictures available on request - £550 ono.
  23. I'd love to have nothing to do all day but troll forums being a pain in the ass....
  24. Also - try www.manxcakemaker.com, or www.coo.im (this one is new but very very good!)
  25. In answer to the original question, ebay is a good place to look for wedding cake toppers - quite a few vendors can make personalised ones for you - just an option if you can't find anyone one the IOM
