Isle of Wight Ramblers has installed a special gate, replacing a footpath stile, to commemorate the 2015 Walking Festival. David Howarth, Vice-Chairman led three walks to celebrate the opening of the Warrior Trail.

The trail was devised jointly with Visit Isle of Wight and the walk passes places where General Jack Seely and his horse Warrior lived. A leaflet describes the courage of both man and horse during World War 1.

The three walks were extremely popular and donations received from participants towards the purchase of this gate.

Mike Slater, Area Chairman IW Ramblers said,

“The Walking Festival is an important event on the Island calendar, attracting tourists to the island and encouraging more people to take up walking. Donations received from participants support many charities across the Island.”

Well done Island Ramblers. They also have a Donate a Gate Scheme which replaces stiles with gates to make access easier for the less able. Donations are usually made for loved ones: http://www.iowramblers.com/page22.htm
