Brighstone wins Isle of Wight village award

Tourists booking Isle of Wight holidays this year may wish to visit Brighstone after it won the Best Kept Village award.

It is the eighth time Brighstone has been awarded the prize and parish clerk Avice Mariner stated that community pride explains the village's continued success.

"People care. Everyone takes pride in their surroundings, with people caring for their own planters and volunteers looking after village seats," the registrar told the Isle of Wight County Press.

Trophies will be presented at the annual ceremony, which this year takes place at Arreton Community Hall on September 23rd.

Those on Isle of Wight holidays can also head to the island's best large village - Bembridge - as well as to Shalfleet, which won the best medium-sized village award.

Nods for smaller villages on the island went to Brook, Hulverstone and Mottiston.

Brighstone is well-known for its church, the roots of which can be traced back to the 12th century, as well as a pub called The Three Bishops.
