Stephen Carter chairing meeting, 2019


On 26th September 2019 it was announced that Stephen Carter of Baldrine had been appointed Captain of the Parish of Lonan in succession to the late Jack Faragher.  A few days prior to his swearing in he had a baptism of fire when he was asked to chair a public meeting in Laxey following the flooding that caused such devastation in Glen Road. His role was to take a neutral position as chairman and to ensure the meeting was steered with a steady hand. At the beginning of the meeting he explained that whilst he had been announced as the next Captain of the Parish he was not yet sworn in.
