Sir David remembers devoted couple

Tribute is being paid to a devoted Castletown couple who have passed away within a few weeks of each other.

Lenna Petty died at her home on Tuesday at the age of 93, less than a month after the death of her husband Tony.

They leave a family.

Mr Petty received acclaim for preserving the town’s heritage, including the restoration of the Witches Mill, and the couple's garden was much admired.

Well known Island resident Sir David Wilson has been paying his respects (play attached audio file):

Mrs Petty's funeral service will be at Malew Parish Church at 2pm on Saturday.
