The Wonders of the Isle of Wight
Our evenings was spent enjoying music and dancing from comedy show, bands and tribute singer. We also participated in some line dancing. Great nights was enjoyed by all.
At the bowling alley we took part in a friendly competition; boys vs girls. After a very close game with some great scores, the boys were victorious!
We spent an afternoon on the steam railway at Ryde; one of Britain’s heritage railways and a registered educational charity. We sat in restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages where we were able to take in the views of the islands unspoilt countryside. Everyone really enjoyed this trip which was rounded off by visiting the railway museum.
We went to the famous Needles landmark at Alum bay. This is a point of natural outstanding beauty overlooking the 3 stacks of chalk in a row that rise about 30m out of the sea off the western side of the Isle of Wight.
We were lucky to enjoy demonstrations of glass blowing, sweet making and we got to try filling ornaments with colourful sands. We watched it being sealed to keep as a souvenir.
