About Glenfaba and Peel (2016)
Glenfaba extends down the middle section of the west coast of the Isle of Man, bordering Michael to the north, Middle to the east, Rushen and Arbory, Casletown and Malew to the south. It is made up of the parishes of German and Patrick. Glenfaba contains Tynwald Hill, arguably the most important site on the Island, where the Manx parliament has a special open air session once a year, on July 5. Situated on the west coast, Peel is the third largest town in the Isle of Man, after Douglas and Ramsey, but the fourth largest settlement because Onchan, regarded as a 'village', also has more residents. The new constituency also takes in a small part of Marown from the old Middle Constituency. Glenfaba is currently represented by Geoffrey Boot, while Peel is represented by Ray Harmer, both of whom were elected at by elections in September 2015. Those by elections were the result of the elevation of David Anderson and Tim Crookall to the Legislative Council. Mr Anderson had represented Glenfaba since 2001, while Mr Crookall was first elected to serve Peel in 2006.
