Special sitting of Tynwald

A special sitting of Tynwald will take place this morning (Tuesday) to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

An illuminated address for the Queen will be presented to Lieutenant Governor Adam Wood in the presence of Tynwald president Clare Christian, Speaker of the House of Keys Steve Rodan and First Deemster David Doyle.

Manx artist Colleen Corlett was commissioned to carry out the work which reflects Island themes and features all the names of the Tynwald members on the back.

The sitting at nine thirty will be open to members of the public.

The diamond jubilee is being marked in the Island with an extra bank holiday in July and a Manx replica Viking longship will take part in the Jubilee Pageant on the River Thames.
