Totally agree. Bloody church goers!

By what right and under which law does the IOM Cycling Authority decide to close public roads 29/30 April for youth races ? People unable to leave their homes all day, open churches, visit, shop... Si

So can you tell me which church you attend. Because the road closures won't affect the possibility of getting to church. In fact most don't have a church on the closed roads.   Take it, it's a belle

 

but purely because it adds nothing to the debate.

like your posts, moan moan moan but nothing about the thread subject......
Then feel free to put me on ignore. I'll not be offended unless you want me to be, then I'm totally outraged.

 

See ya snowflake x

Yes, church has to be open to the public every day. Someone has to go there twice day to unlock it and to lock it again at the end of the day, check the visitor's book, secure valuables. And of course the nearby residents need to be able to come and go throughout the Saturday.

Congrats. I only just realised you're trolling.

Statements of fact. Churchwardens have not been informed of closure or arrangements for handling the traffic. DOI confirmed the road closure but deny responsibility. On the Sunday it's other residents down the road who get trapped all day.

Why? It's a church. And it's in Jurby.

It can't take long to check the visitors book these days.

But the roads in Jurby aren't closed on the Sunday, but the Saturday. You can download the details of all the road closures from the Information File on the appropriate page. So the residents can move around on Sunday to their hearts content. In any case Jurby Church isn't even on the course but on a road off it (called unsurprisingly Church Road). It's actually off a corner of the course so there may be limited access anyway, depending on where they place the barriers. And it only affects the Saturday morning from 8:45 am to 12:30 pm - the whole day closures (though they are open from 12:30 to 1:30) only affect the area around Ballaugh Old Church (Ballaugh itself isn't included).

 

When you consider the inconveniences that road closures can cause those on the TT Course and most of the Island for nearly four weeks a year, complaining about a few minor back roads that very few people live on being closed for (at most) a day seems a little excessive.

Get out of here with your facts, you know that's not in the spirit of Manxforums.
