Nursery owners replace stolen shrubs

Good Samaritans have stepped in to help a local church, which has been on the receiving end of a series of thefts in recent times.

After hearing yesterday's coverage on Manx Radio of flowers and plants being stolen from St Peter's in Onchan, nursery owners in the north of the Island have offered to help.

Jill and Robert Kneale, who run the Ballanelson facility at Jurby East, are donating Shrubs to replace the two which were taken in the past few days.

The shrubs were removed from the recently refurbished Garden of Remembrance in what churchwarden Nigel Cretney described as 'an escalation' of the thefts.

Mr Cretney is thanking the couple for the kind offer, which has been gratefully accepted.
