Something that I hadn’t really considered too much when deciding to move to the Island was the cost of ferries …. but because of my love for Ventnor, it probably wouldn’t have affected my choice.
Anyway, I’ve been listening with interest to the debate about Macquarie and what they are doing with WightLink. It’s all worrying stuff, especially as it seems to be encouraging some Islanders to consider a permanent link (bridge or tunnel) as a preferable alternative to ferries.
However, I was relieved to see that the Island MP, Andrew Turner seems to be on the case when it comes to the issue of ferries … in fact, he seems to ask lots of questions in Parliament concerning the island.
This should be of interest to anyone on the island and visitors, and I’ll be keeping an eye on it and reporting back, as and when news comes through.
