Manx Employees gain opportunity to explore Manx National Heritage 21 June 2007

Nicola Pemberton presents 3FM with their welcom giftAnother lucky group of Manx employees has been given the opportunity to explore and enjoy the wonders of our national heritage. This has been made possible through the generosity of their employers, 3FM, Isle of Man’s new radio station.

3FM Managing Director, Max Hailey, is the latest of a growing number of Island business men to signal the importance of the country’s past by signing up as a corporate member of Friends of Manx National Heritage.

It’s a step through which not only the employees, but the company, gain benefits which could help with their marketing.

Welcoming 3FM to the ranks of FMNH, Nicola Pemberton, Development and Administration Officer said

“I hope all their staff will enjoy the many benefits of their membership.”

Thanking Nicola for her welcome, Max Hailey said he had decided to become a Corporate Member of FMNH because:

“As a Manx company we wanted to be truly in touch with the Island’s heritage, and we wanted our staff and their families to enjoy it too.
“It is almost three years since we started broadcasting, and we have just heard that the listening figures are up again.”

3 FM reaches the entire island on frequencies between 104 and 106, and broadcasts mainly music with news bulletins every hour.

Members don’t only gain free access to all FMNH sites and attractions, but they may also take part in the many outings and promotions FMNH organises every year.

In addition to staff having free admission to all the Story of Mann sites, 3FM will be able, as can all Corporate members, to entertain business clients at some of Mann’s most atmospheric venues.

The Manx Museum lecture theatre and the Natural History Gallery, Castle Rushen, the House of Manannan and the Old House of Keys in Castletown are included in the sites already available. Soon to be added is the new Viking and Medieval Gallery at the Manx Museum, which will open in summer 2007.

Presenting Mr Hailey with a framed canvas reproduction of a painting in the National Art Collection, Nicola Pemberton told him she hoped he would enjoy it and all the other aspects of our heritage, the conference facilities at the available sites and membership marketing support, including promotion on the FMNH website.

Nicola Pemberton would like to hear from any organisations or businesses which would like to take part in the Friends of Manx National Heritage corporate membership scheme. If interested please give her a ring on 824137.
