Minister's tribute to festival organiser

Tribute is being paid to the man who organised the Isle of Man's two bowling festivals.

Derek Killey passed away recently.

Minister for Tourism & Leisure, Adrian Earnshaw, says Mr Killey's hard work made a significant contribution to tourism, and to visiting bowlers' enjoyment of the events.

Mr Killey (pictured) was Director of the festivals, which take place in June and September.

The June festival was judged the 'best event' in the Island's 2006 tourism awards.
