Island offers refuge to besieged bikers

Hand of friendship extended to legion of soggy bikers

Harsh weather has dealt a chaotic and chilly start to the TT holiday plans of hundreds of visiting bikers, as well as putting paid to tonight's practice session (1 June).

Throughout the day churches, community groups and other local organisations have rallied round to help, offering bikers use of their premises as shelter from the storm.

You can find refuge at the Salvation Army Citadel in Lord Street, Douglas where  hot drinks and snacks will be served in the heat of the capital.

In the north, Lezayre Commissioners are offering sanctuary, you can call them on 812500.

Call Sue on 470802 for an alternative in the north at Ramsey church, found behind the bus station.

If you're in the west, Peel is offering shelter at Corrin hall - and the number there is 316001.

The South Douglas Old Friends Club on Finch Road in Douglas has also opened its doors for hot drinks and shelter.

TT visitors looking for some respite from the weather are welcome at the National Sports Centre at Groves Road in Douglas, where they can have a swim, sauna and shower with a towel for £5.

The sauna is open up to 9pm, last entry 8pm.

There's even a TT 2015 Helpline Isle of Man, so for more information on that call Margaret on 309483 or Sandra on 484805.
