The Isle of Wight is all about community
Community spirit can be found in the rural and urban areas on the Isle of Wight. We’ve gathered together stories that explicitly focus on the Island’s community to share with you.
They might be about a new volunteering scheme, charitable event or grants for local groups. If you have some community information you’d like to share with our readers, get in touch.
