The Government has set up a group to look at how the Island will celebrate the Queen's diamond jubilee.

The Diamond Jubilee Working Group is looking for details of events being organised by local authorities and other bodies on the Island.

It plans to publish details of such events on the Government's website.

The jubilee means the Isle of Man gets an extra bank holiday on July 6th, when the public is being encouraged to take party in community events such as street parties.

Prince Charles is also scheduled to visit the Island as part of the celebrations, but no date has yet been confirmed for the trip.

Anyone staging an event to mark the jubilee is urged to contact the working group on 685211
