Any mention of who will be accompanying Alf? I've looked and can't find any reference to any team going along with him. 

The press release doesn't say, but I doubt he'll be going alone.

They do have a page covering such expenses on the website, though it doesn't cover anything done prior to this administration or done by other Departments.  There's usually between 1 and 3 officials, though Alf did manage four nights in Birmingham "Promoting the Isle of Man at the Commonwealth Games" without anyone to hold his hand.

Meanwhile the only night shelter for homeless closing, perhaps the cost of these trips would be better spent on sorting a replacement shelter!!

The night shelter could be funded with the money that we waste on the horse trams. £600k a year would provide enough to cover it.

It doesn't seem to be a problem with money as much as not being able to find people to run it - either paid staff or volunteers.

They had been advertising for a manager but I would imagine they wouldn’t have got many applicants.

How much funding do they have to operate? Didn't even know we had a night shelter to be honest.

Don’t know to be honest. I just saw the job advertised in the courier and thought you’d be dealing with piss heads and problems all the time and they’ll be lucky to get anyone committed.
