Summer Holidays on the Isle of Wight

Activities for all the family for the school holidays 

In this weeks' episode our feature is all about 5 extra activities that take place during the school holidays on the Isle of Wight.  Something different to entertain the whole family without breaking the bank. We even throw in a wet weather activity for those (few and far between) rainy days on the Island. 

In the News

This week in the News Tony kicks things off with a  congratulations and mention to the Wash the Wight team who have carried various household appliances around the island to raise money for charity. You can donate to the charity and support the effort of the Wash the Wight fundraiser by clicking here.
