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.

For artist Paul Critchley, working with molten glass provides the perfect medium to express his love of art and sculpture.
Paul, the owner of Diamond Isle Sculptured Glass, which is based at Arreton Barns on the Isle of Wight enjoys making elaborate blown vases as well as small glass birds and animals. His ideas come from the local environment and his love of the island.
We caught up with Brenda Jackson during her exhibit at the Winter Gardens in May 2010.

A former furniture store in Spring Hill Ventnor is the headquarters of the Ventnor Historical Society and their Heritage Museum.
Among the many exhibits are relics of WW2 and the railway age on which the holiday resort of Ventnor was founded in Victorian times. The railway has gone, but there is at least a working model of the terminus. These artefacts, together with the large archive of local material are in the care of Graham Bennet (curator) and Fay Hewitt Brown (archivist) who provides a weekly history column in the local paper.
The Museum is normally open May to October and special visits can be arranged. Contact them via their website.
Filmed and produced by Will Jackson, check out his work at Vimeo.
Graham Bennet and Fay Brown talk to Ventnor.tv about the Ventnor Heritage Museum.
