It’s all rather heart-warming. The Pride in Mann awards, there are 11, paint a picture of a small community sticking together, looking out for each other and uniting in their pride in the island and its residents. Overall, Mark Cavendish, the cyclist was the Pride in Mann winner and along with his trophy he gets free flights on Flybe — which I’m sure will make a huge difference to his expenses! He is on and off the island all the time. But some of the other winners make you smile because they do things that only small communities care about and it great to know they are being recognized by the other members of the community.
