Refuse Collections 23 March

Unfortunately our vehicle is unlikely to be fixed until Thursday at the earliest, therefore there will be delays in emptying all bins this week. It is likely that these delays will extend into next week.

As soon we have further information, we will post an update. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Memorial Benches

One way to remember the life of a friend or loved one after their death is through the arrangement of a long-standing tribute, a
reminder they are not forgotten.

A memorial seat or tree has always been a popular choice. You can visit the memorial seats and trees at a loved one’s favourite
viewpoint, either in a park or some other place where they liked to relax and let time pass by.

Malew Parish Commissioners can only authorise benches on land which is in it’s ownership. Unfortunately, this means that we are unable to assist with requests for benches at Langness, Scarlett, Derbyhaven, Fort Island or Cringle Reservoir. Contact should be made to the land owners of these areas should you wish a bench to be located there.

Please contact us for advice on other locations within the Parish.

Christmas Refuse Collections

If your bin is due to be collected on Christmas Day or New Years Day, please put it out on Christmas Eve / New Years Eve (Thursday)
Bin collections usually due on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays will collected as normal over the festive period.

Geoff Taggart

We are saddened to hear of the death of former Commissioner and Chairman Geoff Taggart who passed away on Friday.
Geoff served several terms before standing down in 2012. One of the many highlights during his term of office was the Official Visit of the Lieutenant Governor to the Parish. Geoff proudly escorted the Governor on a guided tour of Billown Farm.
Our thoughts and condolences are with Geoff’s family at this sad time, he will be greatly missed.

David McWilliams

We are saddened to hear of the death of former Commissioner David McWilliams who passed away yesterday in hospital in the United Kingdom.
 
David was elected as a Commissioner in 2001 and went on to serve the parish until 2004. He was well known and respected around Ballasalla Village and the wider community. David took a great interest in local politics and cared much for the people of the Island. He always wanted to ensure that people were treated fairly and with respect.
 
Our thoughts and condolences are with David’s family at this sad time, he will be greatly missed.

Gwen Ross

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of former Commissioner Violet Gwendoline Ross (Gwen).

The Commissioners convey their heartfelt condolencies to Gwen’s family and friends.
