Statement from Andrew Jessopp, Chairman of Braddan Parish Commissioners:-
We are extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Lord of Mann. Her steadfast service and dedication to duty during the last 70 years is an inspiration to a great many people, not just on the Island but across the world.
On behalf of the Commissioners I would like to extend our deepest condolences to the King and the Royal Family on their sad loss.
Braddan Commissioners were delighted to welcome His Excellency Sir John Lorimer and Lady Philippa Lorimer to Union Mills on Wednesday 10 August to formally open the new apartments at Mullen Doway.
The Braddan (Noble’s Hospital) (No. 2) Byelaws 2022 have now been approved by the Department of Instructure and coming into force from 1st September 2022. For full details, please see the attached document.
Braddan Parish Commissioners held their Annual General Meeting on Thursday 26 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.
Mr Andrew Morgan was elected as Vice Chairman, taking over duties from the previous Vice Chairman, Mr John Quaye. It is Mr Morgan’s first term in the role, having only been elected as a Commissioner in August 2021.
The Chairman stated that the past year had continued to be challenging, but:
“The Board and it’s Officers have worked really hard to maintain the level of services to the residents and ratepayers, whilst also making further investments in improving the facilities in the parish.
It was really pleasing to finally see the completion of the 30 new Commissioners’ apartments at Mullen Doway in Union Mills and welcome the new residents, who we are sure will enjoy many years in this modern, comfortable and energy efficient development.
Progress has also continued on the new flagship ‘community hub’ at Strang Corner Field and with some good luck it should be fully operational by this time next year”.
