This International Women’s Day, we asked you to share some love, and by God, you all came out in FORCE! Specifically, we asked you to nominate your favourite lady drinking partner who you thought deserved a whole MAGNUM of Whispering Angel, kindly gifted by our mates at The Wine Cellar. […]
I was watching an episode of Line of Duty and in it Thandi Newton steals some evidence to hide a murder she has committed. She looks over her shoulder nervously, scanning to make sure no one is in sight. She moves quickly, the atmosphere is tense. Again, she checks over […]
Imagine Facebook, but instead of being full of really weird Wish ads (just me?) and baby pics, it’s just full of your really sweet aunties that are relentlessly supportive and love a meme. That’s exactly what Isle of Man Ladies Lock down is. Created by Karen Hannah in the first […]
The Isle of Man is often cut off from the rest of the world through a shroud of ocean mist. Its seemingly untouched splendour is loved by locals and tourists alike, but how much does this isolation cloud the opinions of those who live on it. It certainly did in […]
Should we continue to prosecute people for using cannabis? How does this benefit society? Is it a responsible, ethical and prudent way to spend public money? Giles believes not.
Here’s your weekly round up of all things GOOD Community Efforts Last Saturday, Jake Hodgson completed a 24-hour bike ride on the track around the NSC hockey pitch in memory of Ballakermeen teacher, Carol Synott, who sadly passed away on the 5th of May. The bike ride was only a […]
Being part of the global sport that is cycling, and with friends based in all corners of the world, I’ve heard so much about how different countries are handling this pandemic and the restrictions they have in place. I feel so lucky that our lockdown has allowed us to still […]
Well, while I was expecting this survey to garner some debate I wasn’t quite anticipating it to receive the response it did! Over 1,100 people have completed the survey across a well distributed age range which, whilst I’m no statistician, actually makes the results a statistically significant representation of our […]
Community Efforts As always there have been so many amazing efforts in support of others this week. Every week our island manages to prove how close our community is. This week Heather Maddrell offered some of her abstract paintings in exchange for nothing but a donation to the Friends of […]
Right now, most of our relationships are somewhat ‘long distance’.
Mrs J has excellent advice for anyone struggling to maintain a relationship in these new and often testing times.
In an effort to keep spirits high, Harbour Lights at The Sefton have created their very own GIN CLUB!
If you didn’t get your hands their first gin box last week, here’s what you missed out on!
For 6 neon-drenched weeks, Peggy’s has acted as Douglas Prom’s underground hive for debauchery. As her run draws to an emotional crescendo, we caught up with local photographer Jess Kneen to discuss her recent exhibition at the pop-up discotheque.For those of us who have frequented Peggy’s over the festive period, […]
Last Thursday, Peggy flung open her big, pink doors to the general public serving up an eccentric collection of in your face cocktails, disco beats and somewhat eclectic decor.It’s ‘grammable heaven, so ahead of your visit this weekend (cos let’s be honest – you’re going aren’t ya) we’ve put a […]
It’s just over two years since Mum died. After years of burying her own trauma and internal torment, she finally collapsed under the weight of the world.Her own struggles pushed her into a cul-de-sac of anguish and, so, with no viable solution to cease hers and her family’s suffering, she […]
10,000 miles through 21 countries over 75 days, in a twenty year old hatchback, with no support, guidance or set route. Sounds like a geffing buzz, right? Well that is exactly what is in store for Team Mad Manx.A group of self-proclaimed naive and totally unprepared friends will take on […]
Right, picture this: the Magic School Bus meets the Ibiza club scene. A convergence of two disparate but God-tier memories; one evoking the saccharine sweetness of childhood, the other, a decadent descent into debauchery of old. Imagine such a colossal melding of worlds could produce something magical, otherworldly, spectacular, that only makes sense whilst […]
1.Not even The Proclaimers would do it They’d walk 500 miles they said. They’d walk 500 more, they said. Get fuc*ed, lads. The Frankie Boyle lookalikes and so-Scottish-they-sh*t-deep-fried-mars-bars, acoustic duo may have been laying it on thick in the name of love, but let’s be serious – there’s no way […]
To the Manx music scene the TT festival is a rite of passage. The island population doubles over TT fortnight, and the once quiet streets are littered with leather wearing petrol heads from all over the world. If there’s one thing that these visitors have in common (other than their […]
