Best of Me...Gary Weightman Fifty–something owner of Vannin Photographs, an outlet for my sports and concert photography and occasional quantity surveyor at Magee & Co Best meal (cooked by you or by another): 20 years and I still remember spare ribs from Angry Annie's Shack in Barbados – honey and so many spices in the marinade – stunning simple food. Best outfit or single piece of clothing: It must be getting all wrapped up in five layers and waterproofs for photographing football on a dreary damp cold Manx November Saturday………

Best memory: Being at the old Wembley Stadium when Manchester City won the Second Division playoff final against Gillingham on penalties after Paul Dickov had scored the equaliser in the fifth minute of added time -it’s where it all started to go right for City. Best way to spend the day: For me it would be behind my camera at a football or cricket match. If somebody can arrange

for me to photograph test cricket at Lords or football at the Etihad…….. Best advice: Don't live in the past, it can't be changed. Best place in the Isle of Man: I find myself returning time and time again to the Ayres. If you can get there on a weekday it is splendidly isolated and beautiful.

Does this man have the toughest job in government? It’s hard to imagine there can be a tougher job in the civil service than being the chief executive of the Department of Education and Children. Professor Ronald Barr Since the 2011 general election, the department has seen the controversial introduction of higher education tuition fees, the closure of state-run nurseries, the giving up of the Family Library and the axing of nurture teacher posts. Add to that the sacking of the previous education minister Peter Karran – over his failure to follow ministerial collective responsibility rather than his running of the department – and the apparent need to find yet more savings and it certainly adds up to a tough job ahead for Professor Ronald Barr, who took over as chief executive from Stuart Dobson last month. The good news is that he appears committed to inclusive education catering for all ages and ability, paying proper regard to pupils with additional needs, avoiding the use of exam students as a political

football and recognising the worth of teachers.

The austerity programme across government has taken its toll.

Professor Barr, the former principal of Isle of Man College, spoke to the Manx Advertiser from his new office which, rather reassuringly, did not yet have enough shelf space to hold all the books he has brought with him.

‘We have lost quite a number of staff within the department’s overall head count. I don’t think anyone in the Isle of Man should think education has not tried to deliver a more efficient service based upon the budgets we are set.’

He has been quick to establish his educationalist credentials and to get across the message in particular that primary education – which some may perceive have had a tougher time than secondary – has his commitment.

He said an anticipated increase in the population up to the age of five meant primary schools would need to be equipped to cope with greater demand.

‘I have made a public undertaking to all of the head teachers to visit all the primary schools between now and Easter,’ he said. ‘I am happy to meet teachers and I am happy to spend time with heads and to hear about their schools, their children and their concerns.’ He is under no illusion that there remain difficult times ahead in education, but is keen to have an holistic approach. ‘We have to get into a situation where we are working together – we can’t have people thinking their schools are immune from changes and the more we can work together the better that will be for children.’

At the other end of the age line, as the Coalition Government in the UK continues to toy with different ideas of what makes the perfect exam, Professor Barr is determined that changes in the Isle of Man will come with stability. ‘We hope to have a set of proposals ready by the end of January. Those will then be discussed with head teachers and others in education before going to wider consultation. ‘We have a choice, we can mirror exactly what is happening in England or we have the opportunity to link with what is happening in Wales, Northern Ireland or Scotland. ‘I would like to see some stability in the system. It is manifestly unfair

on children to set them up on an educational journey of coursework and halfway through say it is not going to be coursework it is going to be exams.’ He admitted to ‘frustration’ at the annual debate over the standards of exams and said he believed the standard of teaching had improved from his time at school. He is also unimpressed with the manner in which successive Westminster administrations have introduced changes to the education system, only for the next person at the helm to tinker some more. ‘I am deeply uncomfortable with the majority of changes happening on a regular basis. It is de-motivating to teachers and it can be destabilising for children.’ However, it is clear how highly he regards his team in the Isle of Man. ‘The people who engage in education in the Island I have found to be extremely professional, caring and dedicated in terms of trying to provide the best education they can for young people and students. ‘Whether they are civil servants or front line staff that is the thing I have been most impressed with.’

Primary school children are better than MHKs because… By the time you read this, Tynwald will have resumed after its summer recess, a cause for much rejoicing all round. It is often said that watching our parliamentarians in action is reminiscent of witnessing the behaviour of a primary school playground. This is manifestly unfair. On primary school children, that is. Primary school children are better than MHKs and other Tynwald members for many reasons. Here are just some of them: • If you asked a primary school child whether nurseries were a good thing, they would probably say yes and would know what they were talking about. • When primary school children go round in circles, there is a purpose to it (P.E.). • Primary school children usually grow out of name calling. • And they sometimes listen to parents and teachers. (Sometimes.) • You don’t mind blatant attention seeking from children between the ages of four and eleven. • A school child would probably want to look inside a library before taking the decision to allow it to close.

• A child taking his or her ball home is not a bad thing. • Very few children in a primary school think they know it all. Consequently they are prepared to listen. By listening they learn. Some MHKs, especially, should try to do this a little more. • By the end of reception class year, you would expect a child to know precisely what the left hand and the right hand is doing. • When a child bangs a drum, there is rarely an ulterior motive. • If a child builds something then goes back and sees it is serving no purpose other than taking up space, they are usually quite prepared to knock it down for the greater good or do something to make use of it. We still have Queen’s Pier. • You probably don’t feel the need to cross the road to avoid a group of primary school children, but the temptation to head for a different parish if you see more than three MHKs coming your way is very hard to resist. • For primary school children, the chances are their best years are still ahead of them.

Best is yet to come with the Manx Advertiser The Manx Advertiser is celebrating its first birthday! A year ago, we launched a new magazine and a busy first 12 months has seen a number of developments that have resulted in the Manx Advertiser establishing a firm foothold in the print media in the Isle of Man. It has been a real team effort since it was launched in October last year, with Jeff Black and Sam Noon tapping into a new market. It is designed and printed inhouse at Bridson & Horrox and group managing director Darren Horrox said: ‘This has been a real team effort, with Jeff Black and Sam Noon receiving support from everyone at the group, from director of print operations Tommy Crowe through to operations manager Phil Kelly and his colleagues in producing the magazine.’ Sam Noon said: ‘We have built up a firm client base of advertisers and continue to find more people wanting to use the Advertiser to get their message to drop through 42,000 letter boxes. ‘There’s much more to come in the next 12 months.’ The sales team has now been strengthened with the recent arrival of Sam Lewis, who said: ‘It’s very exciting to be part of this venture. I’ve really enjoyed moving into print media from a radio

advertising background – and offering a fresh perspective - and I look forward to seeing the Manx Advertiser go from strength to strength.’ When the Manx Advertiser launched last year, it consisted entirely of advertisements. However, early customer feedback revealed that people wanted to see articles as well, so the Manx Advertiser teamed up with wellknown Isle of Man journalist Paul Speller to provide editorial content as well, offering a complete package for the reader. That has seen the Manx Advertiser talk to a wide range of people, including an exclusive interview with Les Miserables star Samantha Barks and a face-to-face audience with Lieutenant Governor Adam Wood. The Manx Advertiser has also introduced a comprehensive listings guide in our entertainment section and we continue to receive positive feedback, both on our articles and from our advertisers.

One World Week, which runs from October 20-27, along the theme More than Enough? will also ask whether the world’s population is consuming things at a rate the planet cannot sustain. It is a UK and European-wide initiative, supported here by One World Centre Isle of Man, whose director Rosemary Clarke said: ‘It’s so easy to get caught up in a consumer-driven lifestyle when we see shops full of lovely new things and adverts everywhere persuading us to buy.

• Reading displays in local libraries. ‘What we hope to do in One World Week is to challenge whether we shouldn’t actually all be trying to “be more” rather than “have more” and to get people to reflect on the impact of consumer culture - to consider whether they would rather be defined by what they do, rather than what they own.’ The One World Centre, with help from the Lockington Marshall Trust,

is organising a number of events to highlight the Week. These include: • A free to enter fun quiz to test your knowledge of consumption, waste and other global issues.

A ‘superb’ line up of performers is set to hit the right note at the third Isle of Man Festival of Choirs, which takes place this weekend (October 19-20). Festival director Geoff Corkish said: ‘The calibre of the choirs is again this time simply superb. ‘Clearly, the choirs around the country have been talking about the first two festivals in the Isle of Man, and we really do have absolutely wonderful choirs taking part in all classes.’ The line-up includes Bridgend Male Choir (pictured) from Wales and includes two local choirs – Lon Dhoo Male Voice Choir and Manx Voices. The other choirs are Blackburn People’s Choir, the Bolsterstone Male Voice Choir from Huddersfield, Chanterelles from Leicester, Choros Amici from Tutbury, Froncysllte from Wrexham, Haydock Male Voice Choir from Merseyside and Ladybrook Singers from Stockport. The festival will bring about 500 people to the Island.

Mr Corkish added: ‘The festival is now held every two years and there’s no doubt that the word is spreading. Choirs travel all over the country and across the world on a frequent basis, and have been talking to each other about the Isle of Man Festival. ‘It has taken a great deal of hard work behind the scenes to get this festival started, but it appears that we are now making a name for ourselves in the world of choir festivals.’ The festival takes place in Villa Marina Royal Hall, culminating in Sunday’s finals day where prize money and trophies will be up for grabs. There are three sections: female, male and mixed voice choirs. Each choir will be called on to perform four contrasting pieces of their own choice, one of which must be unaccompanied. Winners of each class go through to the final, with the overall winning choir scooping £1,500. Patron of the Festival is once again internationally renowned singer and Isle of Man resident Moira Anderson.

Now in his early 80s, Reg began studying art at the age of 33, at Douglas School of Art. In 1966 he went on to further study at Nottingham School of Art where he thrived as the well-funded course afforded students generous access to the materials required to make their work. During this time Reg also exhibited in several shows in Nottingham. His work was also selected for the prestigious New Contemporaries exhibition at the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester in 1966. In 1970 after a year living and working in London, Reg moved to Leeds to undertake a teaching diploma at Leeds College of Art. Whilst there, he continued to make sculpture and exhibited his work at various locations around Yorkshire, including a solo show at the University of York.

He led a group of artists to stage the first major exhibition of contemporary art in the Island. His friendship with the photographer Chris Killip, curator at the Side Gallery in Newcastle, also enabled him to bring the work of internationally renowned photographers to the Island including the work of Killip, John Heartfield, Paul Strand and Weegee. Five Easy Pieces is open daily from 10am to 5pm. Admission to the exhibition gallery is free.

Two new posts at SMP Partners SMP Partners, provider of corporate services to the Isle of Man's e-gaming sector, has created two new posts in its gaming department. Luke Fisher and Vicky Campbell (both pictured) are joining the team, which now has more than 20 members. The appointments reflect increasing demand for expertise in the e-gaming field. Over the past three years, SMP Partners has introduced and managed more than 60 per cent of the licences heard by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission. The company says it manages and supports almost half of the licensed gaming companies in the Isle of Man. SMP Partners’ group director David Hudson said the appointments ‘reflect a growing demand for our services in the e-gaming sector and the success we have enjoyed helping the Isle of Man develop this industry’. Luke, who studied sports business management at Sheffield Hallam University, joins SMP Partners with experience in the Isle of Man finance industry and having recently completed an on-Island e-gaming course.

Vicky Campbell

Luke Fisher

He said: ‘I have a strong level of interest in the business world and more specifically e-gaming. Seeing the growth in the Island was a huge influence in wanting to get involved within the sector, and be a part of something expansive and new.’ After training and working in the UK, qualified accountant Vicky added offshore experience to her skills when she moved to the Isle of Man in 2011. She said: ‘I am very much looking forward to the exciting challenges that e-gaming at SMP Partners will bring; book-keeping and accounting for egaming companies brings a high degree of complexity and I relish the opportunity to learn new skills from the experienced team established at SMP.’.

New PR firm is a family affair Chris Sams Rafferty has formed Pomegranate PR with husband and business partner Kevin Rafferty.

‘One thing led to another and we quickly found ourselves with more projects and Pomegranate PR was created.’ She added: ‘There’s no pretence at being a big full service agency, we’re small with loads of experience and low overheads and we can call on a small group of trusted freelancers if we need them for specific projects.

Ramsey redevelopment work aims to attract investment The latest phase of work to make Ramsey a more attract place to shop – and hopefully attract more investment in the town - got under way this week, with work centring on East Street and its junction with Parliament Street. Under this stage of the Ramsey regeneration programme, wider pedestrian-friendly pavements are to be put in place at a cost of £317,000. The work, using materials to match the new courthouse area, has been brought forward as it includes an upgrade of the surface water drainage outfall for Parliament Street to increase capacity. Chief Minister Allan Bell is a Ramsey MHK and chairman of the Ramsey Regeneration Committee. He said: ‘The Ramsey Regeneration Committee has worked hard to keep the momentum of regeneration progress in the retail area going.

‘This important next phase will begin the transformation of the main shopping street to make it a more attractive place to visit and spend time, while acting as a catalyst for further investment in the town.’ By co-ordinating the work with the drainage upgrade, the aim is to keep disruption to a minimum. The road closures required for the East Street works are being coordinated with the closures for the swing bridge in order to minimise disruption in this part of Ramsey. The project is expected to take 16 weeks and, as it is focused on East Street, it will reduce disruption to the main Parliament Street shopping area over the busy Christmas retail period. The regeneration work planned for Parliament Street between East Street and Court Row will start early in 2014 and is scheduled to follow on directly after the East Street phase.

Legal eagles go online Quinn Legal launches its new website at Salt in Douglas tomorrow (Thursday). The launch has been spearheaded by James Quinn following his full acquisition of the law firm in March of this year. The website is part of a commitment to ‘savvy’ communications by the law firm.

‘We’ve been using our marketing and business skills on our own brands for several years, including our award winning natural and organic skincare company, Pomegranate Organics, which continues to grow,’ she said. ‘When the opportunity to work with a brand new company in a completely different field arose a few months ago we handled the branding, wrote the copy for and designed the website, as well as creating materials and graphics for a UK launch.

13

It aims to depict team as a welcoming group of professionals; easygoing with their clients, but a formidable force to be reckoned with both in and out of the courtroom.

Chris Sams Rafferty

‘There seems to be a niche for this type of business in the current economic climate and we are happy to fill it.’ Pomegranate PR also offers business support services headed up by Kevin Rafferty. Mrs Sams Rafferty was managing director of international marketing communications agency, High Profile Marketing, for 15 years with offices in the Isle of Man, the UK and Ireland.

Prospective clients will also be able to see the views of Quinn Legal’s previous clientele.

Peter Cannell

The website will also host an online advice centre and Quinn Legal will choose at least one query each month and post answers. The inquirer will remain anonymous. Subjects that could be covered by this service include: corporate and commercial law; dispute resolution; employment law; family law; family wealth management; wealth management; probate; notarial; property and conveyancing; wills and estate planning. This year has also seen the admission to the Manx Bar of Catherine Burge and Peter Cannell, contributing to the modern dynamics of the Quinn Legal team.
