Well done team 1Leisure, who took part in the Brading 10K road race last weekend. There were some terrific individual performances - our own Holly Newton was first woman over the line with an incredible time of 43 mins and 40 seconds. Team 1Leisure will be doing more races in the near future so, if you are a 1Leisure member who wants to join us, please let the team know at leisureinfo@iow.gov.uk Don't worry about being the fastest or slowest, the team is a non-competitive, all-inclusive, everyone-come-and-join group so why not get in touch?

We've had some great feedback from staff and pupils who took part in our evacuation experience day at Havenstreet steam railway last week... Eve from Haylands primary school said: “I liked learning about rationing. I also liked it when we went on the train, because I felt like I was really being evacuated.” And her teacher, Mrs Rose, said: “It’s just such a well planned and well organised trip; it brings it alive for children. They had a brilliant time and learnt so much.”
