My personal views on the square and parking don't matter what matters here is some child going under a car promulgated by some half assed planning layout by the commissioners !!

Yes I agree I was just pointing out that before cars we tethered horses at the exact same spots that we are now taking parking out from. It does seem an odd sense of progress.

I am not on facebook, but perhaps someone who is could bring this to the attention of the commissioners....... This morning I was parked outside the George in the Square looking at the astroturf and the deckchairs and children's toys, which occupy the other half of the square. A number of small children were playing with the toys, when one of them decided to run off, and as there is no barrier between what is now effectively a children's play area and the cars parking an accident with a car was narrowly avoided. I told a parking controller to bring this to the attention of the commissioners it needs fencing or the whole thing closing again , whatever my personal views before there is an accident ! I would be grateful if someone can copy and paste this onto the commissioners facebook site. Cheers !!

You will be pleased to know that they are currently putting a fence around the area

I'm impressed that you have the Ancient Capital of Mann under24/7 surveillance from your drone. (And yes, I know...the only real drone in Castletown is Tony Brown).

Weren’t these kids supervised.? Where were the parents?

Just because the comms try to provide something for kids should not mean those kids can run wild and be the responsibility of said comms, Shirley ?
