Court House acquisition completed

Ramsey Town Commissioners are pleased to announce that they have completed the purchase of Ramsey Courthouse from the Department of Home Affairs.

Chairman Andy Cowie commented that "I am absolutely delighted that we have finally exchanged contracts with the DHA and the Courthouse now belongs to the town.

The Commission are already working on the future plans for the operation of the building and are considering a number of practical proposals and suggestions.

In the meantime, we have appointed a team to manage the operation of the courthouse and maximise the usage of the building for the benefit of the town.

I am confident that the team will ensure we can host some interesting local events over the summer months and really start to gain from the building.  As well as our grateful thanks for the hard work that a lot of local residents put in to secure the courthouse I would also like to thank the Department of Home Affairs and the Minister for their help during the purchase process."

The Courthouse will host a motorcycle racing themed photographic and motorcycle exhibition during the busy TT period.   This will be open between 10am and 4pm daily between Saturday 26th May to Saturday 9th Juneinclusive.   This event is being staged by Les Clarke and Richard Radcliffe with the support of Cains Gordon Bell.
