Merge Services

I am sure some services could be merged, eg schools.  There are such small intakes now in some country schools. A step is being taken having one Head in Dhoon & Laxey but it is admitted this will only save the difference between a teacher & head's salary.  If the schools were merged, imagine the savings of not having the Dhoon school maintenance, heating & lighting. There would probably be an initial outcry from people living in those areas but if you go to live in Maughold, Ballaugh etc and are working, in today's world you are bound to have transport so could drop children off if they were at a school slightly further away.  Laxey is not far from Dhoon in a car or Ballaugh from Kirk Michael.
