Summer holiday activities on the Isle of Wight 

This summer on the Isle of Wight, we've family activities happening every week of the holidays at Newtown National Nature Reserve, Mottistone Gardens, Bembridge Windmill and the Needles Battery. Add to that two sandcastle competitions, and all of the other places you can go, there should be plenty to keep the little ones busy this summer.

Help restore the sweeps 

We're busy raising £50,000 to restore part of the sails, called sweeps. Every time you visit the windmill, you're helping to achieve this, but if you can't make it along, you can donate online too.
