Over 40 Red Funnel staff and their families braved the wet weather at Ventnor and Steephill Cove to take part in the biggest-ever organised clean-up of the Island’s coastline.
Isle of Wight Day
Isle of Wight Day was conceived by the 2015 High Sheriff for the Isle of Wight, Robin Courage.
The first event was held on 24th September 2016 and aims to celebrate all that is good on the Isle of Wight.
As well as being a day of celebration for what if great about the Isle of Wight, the day aims to raise money for several charities on the Island.
Events were held all over the Island sitting under the Isle of Wight Day banner and a parade was held in Newport.
Over the weekend of 22-23 September, Islanders and visitors are being encouraged to take part in the biggest beach clean the Isle of Wight has ever seen, as part of Isle of Wight Day celebrations.
