Today marked the opening of the Quiet Room at Ronaldsway, which will give patients respite during what is a very difficult time for them. This now means we have a Quiet Room for all patients, at both ends of the air route which is an excellent achievement.
It was wonderful to see Government and charities working together. Particular mention to Julie Stokes and everyone at Manx Breast Cancer Support for driving this forward as well as Ann Reynolds, the staff and the charities and businesses that have supported and helped to make this happen.
Thank you to all the teams across Government who are out tonight in the storms working in very difficult conditions. Over 80 trees have come down tonight and blocked a number of roads.

Active Travel Consultation
The monthly surgery with Commissioners will take place this Saturday, 9th September at the Peel Town Hall from 11am to 12pm. All welcome.
Proposals (see below) have been drawn up to help reduce vehicle speeds passing through St Johns.
The scheme that highlights the speed limit of 30mph in both the north and southbound directions of the main Foxdale Road (A3) in the form of 30mph limit gateways. These include a localised area of red carriageway surfacing, signage and a white edge of carriageway line marking both sides of the road. The proposal also includes some edge of carriageway markings at the crossroads to slow vehicle speeds as drivers negotiate this junction.

The Foxdale post office has a reprieve until at least the New Year. The shop will undergo a refit in September. The long term survival of the Post Office will depend on how well it is used in the coming months.
The main road through Higher Foxdale will close from today and subject to favourable conditions, the target for completion is an earlier date of Wednesday 2 August.
Extended hours, weekend working and the deployment of additional resources will be used to help achieve the revised finish date.
