Isle of Wight village in final of competition

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays could visit a village that has been named as a finalist in a competition to find the best location in the area.

Whippingham has made it into the final four of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Village of the Year contest, with the winner set to be announced next month, reports VentnorBlog.

It is the only village on the Isle of Wight to be in the last stage of the competition, which is run by the Hampshire Association of Local Councils.

"If Whippingham are lucky enough to get through, [a] representative of the village will be asked along to a presentation event in September in North Waltham to receive the award," noted the news provider.

The village is located towards the northern coast of the island and has a heritage trail that may be of interest to those on Isle of Wight holidays, with Whippingham Community Hall suggested as a starting point.
