Once there was a derelict garden area next to the central car park in Ventnor, but not any more, thanks to a group of volunteers who were also responsible for improvements to other areas of the car park. They got fed up with waiting for the local council to take action and did it themselves! Now there is a pleasant oasis of calm as a restful breathing space for visitors and residents alike.
Penny Betts, interviewed here, is a member of the volunteer group which also worked with the Ventnor Enhancement Fund in sponsoring the mosaic panels on the car park site, featured in this video.
