Sadly I can’t get there as I don’t have a car. Just waiting for the Newport and Ryde Markets to advertise their back.

The mistake here is it is only on the 4 hours. A lengthier time will discourage a rush.

Maybe not the best idea to encourage people here now we have a clearer idea of Covid-19 infection on the IW. Maybe there are good reasons why other events have been cancelled…?


It is a very large area for around 30 stalls and there should be plenty of room for at least 2m social distancing – it is just 4 hours, out in the open, etc and is giving local businesses the chance to remind Island residents that they still exist…sadly, some have already gone to the wall.
