Work will begin to raise funds to improve the facilities in Castletown’s Poulsom Park to encourage the park’s use by all ages.

This follows a local authority meeting at which commissioner Kevin Weir proposed a notice of motion asking for the authority – which is trustee of the park – to approve that a committee, comprising town MHK Richard Ronan, police constable Jimmy Cubbon and himself, raise funds for amenities and other improvements.

Mr Weir said: ‘We would have to go out for private money, it will not be rate-borne, if somebody wants to purchase equipment we will go to the board and ask “Can we put this in?”. It’s working in conjunction with them (the commissioners).’
