Isle of Wight to get new town square

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays may soon be able to visit a new town square while they are on the island.

The Isle of Wight Council has announced that Ryde is to have the new area built in October 2010 in a bid to improve its public image.

It is thought the work will take between six and eight weeks, so people spending Christmas on the Isle of Wight should be able to check it out when they visit.

The square is set to be located at the junction of the High Street and John Street.

Isle of Wight Council cabinet member responsible for the environment Edward Giles said: "Once finished, the town square will enhance the High Street and also provide an area for shoppers to sit down and enjoy their time."

People on Isle of Wight holidays who go to Ryde to see the new square for themselves may also wish to visit the pitch and putt golf course in the town at Appley Park.
