Reih Bleeaney Vanannan Medal

 

Friday 13th January 2012

Wow – what a birthday I have had!

Today 8 of us from MFDS went to visit the  Manx Heritage Foundation in the Stable Block of the Nunnery to receive the prestigious Manx Cultural Award – Reih Bleeaney Vanannan from the Minister for Tourism, Leisure and Culture on behalf of the Society. This is awarded each year to the person or group that has made an outstanding contribution to Manx Culture – and this year it was us!!!!!

We also received a ‘medal’ and a cheque for £500. After a delightful buffet lunch we danced in the Courtyard, before heading for home.
