Towns and villages across the Isle of Man should celebrate Tynwald Day on 5 July, one of the organisers has said.

Laurence Skelly, enhancement officer, said the festivities should be enjoyed across the island, and not restricted to St John's and Tynwald Hill.

He said Ramsey already planned events in National Week.

"It is great to see. We hope other towns and villages will jump on board and have their own events and celebrate National Week," Mr Skelly said.
