Laxey Beach Cafe

The Commissioners have let these people provide furniture, flower tubs etc for years now turning what was a miserable shelter into a place for people to sit and chat in comfort with the option of enjoying a coffee, ice cream etc.   Then someone mentioned that there were no facilities for the people who enjoy wild swimming which is becoming very popular so they decided to turf the people who had been using the shelter out…mid season.. and build lockers around the shelter leaving a small space where they would put their own tables for people to sit and presumably enjoy the view of the wild swimmers getting changed.   Whoever dreamed this crackpot idea up should not be in charge of a cat let alone the village finances.  5000 + signatures later they have not had the decency to reply to the cafe owner who currently furnishes the shelter.   The voters of Garff should get rid of these vacuous fools.

Why put lockers by the cafe and not next to the toilets on the pier where people can get changed in private...

and build lockers around the shelter

What will be placed in these lockers? If people arrive by car, there is no need. If they are locals who walk to the beach, what do they wear that needs to be secured - do they walk down in Jimmy Choo trainers and diamond necklaces?

At the end of the day this woman is a Laxey commissioner. I’m not sure what all the outcry is about. It’s just the usual pathetic spat between tinpot local commissioners. They did something she didn’t like, she gets people to sign a petition, now nobody wants to back down. But the basic position is one pathetic commissioner in a spat with the rest of the pathetic commissioners.

You have made a lot of assumptions: none of them are correct.

Pottered down to Laxey today, there were 34 people sat on the benches outside the Beach Cafe.  There wasn’t a single person in the sea, despite it being Bank Holiday Monday.  Was chatting to a couple of bikers from the Bristol area, regular visitors, they were very surprised at the plans.

Who are these commissioners who think they can disregard over 5000 people who have signed a petition?    When they install these lockers are they going to close the shelter at night ?  If not they will probably get vandalised and who is going to clean the shelter and keep the furniture clean…..more expense for the ratepayers.   They have obviously not thought this great plan through.  It seems to me to be personal and the lady from the kiosk has upset one of them.     The ice cream from the kiosk is absolutely fantastic whether it will taste as good sitting in a shelter surrounded by dripping naked bodies getting changed is another matter.

She’s handed the lease back anyway. So probably no Ice cream either.
