nine and eight, get stuck into the cakes

MALEW Commissioners organised a very successful Manx tay and concert on July 11, as part of Manx Week celebrations. President of Tynwald Noel Cringle compered an evening of entertainment that included Hugh Jackson reading Manx dialect poetry, Dorothy Faragher reading Manx poetry and Barry Powell and Robert Cowley on electro-acoustic guitars.

Granville Christie gave a vocal solo performance, there was a keyboard solo by Geoff Quine, and then Geoff and Granville accompanied a sing-a-long.

Thanks went to the ladies who prepared the tea – Joyce Young, Elin Kelly, Thelma Cain, Catherine Bridson, Alison Hay and Donna Caley.

The evening raised £300 for the Malew Endowment Committee and this will go on fuel vouchers to be distributed to the elderly in the parish to subsidise their fuel bills in the winter.
