Council of Ministers meeting all morning

Lunchtime presentation briefing on international matters

Afternoon Council of Minister workshop looking at Strategic Air Services

In the evening attended the seventh North Atlantic Native Sheep and Wool Conference launch at the Manx Museum Lecture Theatre. Nearly 150 people from all around the world with great enthusiasm promoting the value of native species. An excellent presentation on our own local sheep, Loaghtan, that have come back from the brink. The conference runs with events through until Sunday and is sponsored in part by the Arts Council and Culture Vannin among others.

Karin Flatoy Svarstad, the founder, is very motivated and I am sure the event, hosted annually by different counties will not only raise interest in native  breeds and value their wool and meat but grow commercial interest.
