Ventnor on the Isle of Wight is a south facing resort with a micro climate owing to its position on the side of a cliff formation. With adjacent country walks and down lands, a fine beach, unique shops, nine pubs and eight churches it’s a great place to spend the afternoon or even longer!
So you thought the Island’s Carnival Centre in Ryde would be quiet in off season times. No such thing as they work with the community of volunteers to produce some very proud and grand flags, representing all the Island Towns in preparation for a summer of Carnival excitement.
Each summer at the lowest of the low spring tides in the middle of the Solent the Brambles Bank is exposed. This sand bank then hosts the annual cricket match between the Island Sailing Club and the Royal Southern Yacht Club. Stills from this event can be found at www.facebook.com/LivingontheIsland
