'Shell out' and crack the Easter code
Children in Douglas town centre on Easter Saturday, April 7 can enter a treasure hunt to track down clues that will earn them a chocolate bunny. Organised by Douglas Development Partnership in association with Davisons the treasure hunt costs just 50p to enter at The Chocolate Box in Regent Street where children can pick up an entry form. The form will lead them to shops in the town centre displaying a clue in the window. Each clue is a letter and when all the letters have been tracked down, they will spell out a word or words. Children then take their completed form to Tower House where the first 200 with the correct answer can claim their Davisons chocolate bunny, join an Easter craft workshop and have their face painted.
'Rock on' for charity…An opportunity too rare to ‘refuge’
An escorted walk out to Conister Rock and the Tower of Refuge in aid of the RNLI has been organised by Douglas Development Partnership and sponsored by Tower Insurance.
Fitness and fundraising: Sport Relief comes to Douglas
The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile is back – and it’s coming to Douglas. The town is to host its second Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile event on Sunday March 25.
Starting at the Bottleneck car park on Douglas Promenade at 12.30pm the Douglas Mile is set to be a memorable community event. Entrants don’t have to be sporty to take part, they need only choose to complete one, three or six miles, knowing the money raised will help change the lives of disadvantaged people around the world.
We love Douglas
Love was in the air…and in Douglas town centre on the Saturday before St Valentine’s Day when a pair of cupids made their winged way through the town ‘sharing the love’ and handing out roses.
Town centre manager Gill Anderson said: ‘Retailing culture these days is all about putting the heart back into town centres, so what better way in the run-up to St Valentine’s Day than to enlist the help, hearts and bows and arrows of our two modern-day cupids.’
‘All the world’s a stage’
…And that includes Douglas town centre.
It’s yours to perform in.
We’re looking for all kinds of street entertainers – amateurs, professionals, solo artists, groups, bands, living statues, magicians – anyone looking to share their talent in the heart of the town.
You don’t have to be the next ‘Gaga’ or ‘Robbie’, just be willing to give it a go and join our register of street performers.
For TT, for Christmas…for the sheer fun of it.
