      It has been mentioned that if any of the folk who had been on the Entente Cordial runs with Albert and Mary Scales were able to come to the Isle of Mann they’d be made most welcome. Mary Scales may well come across and stop at Jon’s while we’re over.

      Trevor Kent I know did a number of trips with Albert and Mary.

      I have been in touch with a local Hotel up in Ramsey (in the North of the Island) to see if we can get some preferential rates for the weekend in question.

      Ramsey Park Hotel

      They are in the process of getting a rough combined price for the stay and the ferry.

      Would like to come but as my lady is a house parent in a boarding school she may be on duty. Will not know rota until beginning of that term.

      Dear All,

      Ferry prices have now been released for the Steam Packet (aka Steam Racket), the following ferries are currently scheduled;

      Saturday 5th May Heysham (Lancs top part of M6)
      12:00 arriving Isle of Man 14:15

      Monday 7th May Isle of Man to Liverpool (Pier Head)
      15:30 arriving Liverpool 18:15

      The cost of a Car and two passengers is £194. I will get in touch with the Hotel to see if we can get a combined rate for the weekend. In terms of identification, at the moment you do not need any, but I would advise at least photo id if there is an issue and you have to fly.

      There is of course the 19:30 boat from Liverpool on the Friday night (4th May), which arrives around 22:15. Would mean being at Pier Head by about 18:30.

      Another thought for somewhere to visit would be Magnetic Hill…..For the Scientists among you…..

      I know we now have very few spaces left for this but we may be able to obtain more accommodation as necessary.

       

      I have had it confirmed today and yesterday that we have got reserved access to both Cregneash/The Sound/Calf of Man.
