Braddan Commissioners’ AGM – 2 May 2019

Braddan Commissioners held their Annual General Meeting on Thursday 2 May and are pleased to announce that Mr Andrew Jessopp was re elected as Chairman for the next Municipal year.

Mr Jessopp has served as Chairman to the Commissioners since May 2013.

Miss Christina Corkill was elected as Vice Chairman for the first time, taking over duties from the previous Vice Chairman, Mr Neal Mellon.

Braddan Commissioners announce 2019/2020 Rates

Braddan Commissioners’ Rate set at 201p in the pound

Braddan Commissioners wish to advise that at a meeting held on 24 January 2019, they set their Parish Rate at 201p in the pound, which represents a 0.5% increase on the previous year.

The Commissioners have ambitious plans for the year ahead which they believe they can achieve with the rate income for the coming year and with the aid of some money that has been underspent in the current year.

The Commissioners will announce the details of the schemes as soon as they have been firmed up, but they include schemes for their recreation areas in Clybane, Snugborough and Cronk Grianagh Park and also enhancement of their work of keeping the Parish clean and tidy and promoting more recycling.

Secular Act of Remembrance – Sunday 11 November 2018 – 10.45am

Braddan Commissioners are holding a Secular Act of Remembrance on Sunday 11 November at 10.45am at the Memorial Hall in Union Mills.

The Two Minute Silence will be observed at 11am.

The Commissioners’ Chairman Mr Andrew Jessopp said “All are welcome to attend the event. Representatives from the Isle of Man Freethinkers will conduct a short ceremony of Remembrance. Light refreshments will be served afterwards.”

Braddan Commissioners have erected two silhouettes of WW1 soldiers in front of the Memorial Hall, together with 60 metal poppies; one to represent each of the 60 men from the Parish of Braddan who perished in the First and Second World Wars.

The setting of the Memorial Hall is particularly poignant as the Hall, which was built in 1903, has a brass plaque mounted above the entrance with the crest of the West Riding Regiment and the following inscription:-

“To the Beloved Memory

 Of

John Dalrymple Maitland. B.A.

2nd Lieut 9th Duke of Wellington’s Regiment

Who was killed in action at Boesinche near Ypres

On the 21st February 1916 aged 24 years

Only son of the Speaker of the House of Keys

Dalrymple Maitland J.P.C.P.

And great grandson of James Dalrymple

This tablet was erected by residents in Union Mills

And other friends.

“A noble manly life is ended”.”
