Advance Notice – Resurfacing of side roads – Snugborough Housing Estate, Union Mills

We have been advised by the DOI that they are planning to resurface the side roads within the Snugborough Housing Estate starting next week (W/C 28 October 2019).

The main part of Snugborough Avenue from the junction with the Peel Road will just be patched at this time. It will be resurfaced properly after we have completed the building works at Mullen Doway.

Charity Donations to the TT Riders Assocation & The Dan Kneen Charitable Fund

Braddan Commissioners’ Chairman, Andrew Jessopp presented representatives from the Dan Kneen Charitable Fund and the TT Riders Association with cheques for £361.50 each at their meeting on the 17 October.

The money was raised from racing fans during this year’s TT and Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling at the Commissioners’ Memorial Hall in Union Mills. The garden is always popular with spectators and the Commissioners open the hall for the use of Marshalls and fans free of charge.

Andrew Jessopp said “Braddan Commissioners have organised charity collections at the Memorial Hall for several years and we’re grateful to the fans who donated so generously to these worthwhile causes”.
