This the view down to the end of the street where we are currently living . Queen's Pier is just at the bottom.
Things were well under way and the speeches had all finished. People were milling around, listening to the band playing. The Tuesday Tooters is an initiative of the Ramsey Town Band to give senior citizens an opportunity to learn new skills. They are pretty darned good.
We admired the work in progress and chatted to a friend who is one of the volunteers repairing the Pier.
First opened in 1886, Queen's Pier provided a deep water berth for visiting vessels until 1970, when it fell into disuse before being closed for safety reasons in 1991.
