Sandown to get heritage trail

Visitors to Sandown on the Isle of Wight will soon be able to take a heritage trail around the town. 

The Sandown Community Partnership has received a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant - funded using money from the National Lottery for Good Causes pot - which totals £6,800. 

It is hoped that by allowing people to take a walk through the history of the town, some of Sandown's former sparkle can be restored. 

"Sandown is a beautiful place and has such happy memories for so many people who took holidays here as children, but has sadly suffered like many resorts in recent times," commented project coordinator Andrew Vaughan. 

Sandown, on the island's south coast, is a traditional English seaside resort, with a long sandy beach and a pier. Attractions include the zoo, housed in an old fort, and the purpose-built interactive Dinosaur Museum. It also hosts one of the oldest carnivals each summer, dating back to 1889.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801689603-ADNFCR
