Lego Winner

Manx National Heritage has announced Lily Cunningham, aged 9, has won the top prize in the LEGO® on the Loose trail held at MNH sites.

Lily is now the proud guardian of a display case containing all 32 of the collectible LEGO® minifigures from the trail, including Dave the Dragon and Miles the Baker.

Over 1,000 people took part in trying to find the tribe of troublesome LEGO® minifigures hidden at Castle Rushen, the Manx Museum and the House of Manannan. There were over 500 correct completed entries submitted over the three week period.

Helen Ashcroft, Public Engagement Manager at Manx National Heritage said: ‘Thank you to all of you who took part in the trail. All of us here at Manx National Heritage loved welcoming so many families to the sites to participate in the trail and it was great to have the characters back hiding around three of our iconic sites.’

No Swimming!

We just wanted to share this from Manx Utilities: ‘It is very concerning that Isle of Man Constabulary Media Page have had to come to us following reports of young people swimming in Kerrowdhoo Reservoir last night. Not only is this illegal it is also a DANGER TO LIFE. Reservoirs are deep and very cold with unseen undercurrents that can have dire consequences for even the strongest of swimmers. Please speak to your children about the dangers of playing in and around Reservoirs’
