Moorhouse and Castletown Square

Maybe they should have delayed it for another month and have it in place until end of September .  Nothing wrong with parking there out of season.  Think some of the local traders will be a bit upset with this move.

 

We do seem to have some strange belief that shoppers don’t need to park their cars. I rarely go to Castletown as I find it so annoying having to drive round to find a park miles away from the shops.

Miles away from the CTown shops? That'll be Port Erin then! Shop there.

When it’s raining it’s a real pain if you can only park somewhere the other side of the bridge and walk in.

As a resident of Port Erin, unless you need to go to Shoprite, Castletown is much easier to find parking. Even if all the free parking has gone, there is massive carpark behind shop rite that costs 25p per half hour. Fuel costs are more than a couple of hours parking. 

The biggest issue is that the square flip flops open / closed so often people forget what its like and the moaners get airtime several times a year no matter what side of the fence they sit on.

Just been to the coop for some milk, they're cleaning the square with what looks like the mythical douglas corporation chewing gum machine!

Why are you needlessly trying to provoke me just because I expressed a view on parking?

You know Neil, you don't need to always reply to everything.  If you just joined in when you had something worthwhile to say then it would be much better, although your post count would admittedly be under 100 still.

Looking forward to the lame response with smiley btw.
