I was down there today Baylon. Most enjoyable. Lots of stuff never seen before. Bill has put a lot of work into it.

Get over to Laxey!!
The photo exhibition at the Laxey Woollen Mills will be closed on Sunday, apologies for this, but we will be open 9am to 5 pm Monday to Saturday next week for the locals who were involved with the MGP races and couldn't get there.
Open all day Saturday.
Very busy on Friday, the Helicopter bucket is getting very full! Visitors include Nick J and other riders, including a gent who rode the Manx in 1937. Let's pray we can get the races run today.

I went Thursday, I must say, an excellent exhibition. So many memories is so little space. Well done Bill for all the hard work.

RE: Get over to Laxey!!
I must apologies to those who turned up at Laxey to see the exhibition today (Sunday). John, the owner of the Mill, was away in Scotland shooting, I am unable to open just the gallery due to security being integral with the shop.
The exhibition will be open next week from Monday to Saturday, 9 am to 5 pm - I promise!

Sorry Bill!
In my brief synopsis of the Manx, I forgot to mention that I visited your fantastic display at the Woollen Mills. Absolutely tremendous as someone would say!
Anybody visiting this week will be in for a treat. I was amazed just how many folk were there. Don't miss it!
