New Chairman for Friends of Manx National Heritage
Well-known local Accountant, Michael Crowe, has succeeded Robert Quayle as Chair of Friends of Manx National Heritage.
Michael is a former pupil of King William’s College. He was a founder and partner, now retired, of the firm Crowe Morgan, Chartered Accountants. Passionately supportive of our Manx heritage, Michael has served on the Board of FMNH for the past four years.
“I am delighted to be taking over from Robert and thank him for all his valuable work and support for the Friends over more than 30 years. We face a number of interesting challenges in the years ahead, not least in ensuring that we continue to support the work of Manx National Heritage in as meaningful a way as possible. FMNH is assisting MNH with funding for the restoration of Thornbank, a terrace house in Douglas designed by the renowned Arts & Crafts architect MacKay Hugh Baillie Scott, which subject to planning will hopefully start soon; together with the new TT/Motorsport Gallery at the Manx Museum. The restoration of the historic 18th century yacht Peggy will also be high on our list for support. The Friends have a website and Facebook page to enable our members/volunteers and anyone interested to keep up to date with news and activities.”
