President praises Tynwald spirit

Tynwald President Clare Christain impressed with community effort

The President of Tynwald has praised the spirit of locals and visitors alike after they braved the elements at Tynwald Day.

Rain, at times heavy, arrived in St John's from mid-morning and stayed throughout proceedings.

Clare Christian, who has been officially involved in the ceremony since 1980 when she was elected an MHK, says it was a real community effort.
