The winter season has now commenced at Manx National Heritage (MNH), providing an opportunity to undertake essential improvement works at our important heritage sites. MNH recently welcomed a dedicated band of volunteers from Isle of Man Bank to The Grove in Ramsey.
The team from Isle of Man Bank gave the ticket office and shop building a new lease of life by redecorating the exterior and also renewing an adjacent fence.
Dating back to the mid 19th century The Grove, now known as the Museum of Victorian Life presents a series of period rooms of original furnishings, fittings and precious possessions belonging to three generations of the Gibb family.
Shaun Murphy of MNH co-ordinated the work:
“The appearance of the outbuilding and the fencing was looking tired. We are very grateful for the work carried out by Isle of Man Bank, which has made a vast improvement to the entrance and the welcome to visitors at The Grove. The team managed to get through a considerable amount of work and in the process they have really transformed this area”.
John Lindon, Head of Community Investment for Isle of Man Bank commented:
“We are committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work and volunteering is a way to develop new skills and team work across our divisions. Our Products and Marketing team were delighted to support the excellent ongoing work of MNH with a ‘Community Day’ at The Grove”.
Manx National Heritage regularly works with companies seeking an ‘away day’ which provide excellent team building opportunities whilst providing excellent support for its work across the Island’s countryside, heritage sites and ancient monuments. Find out more – Support Us.
