Visit to sculpture could be feature of Isle of Wight holiday

Those taking Isle of Wight holidays over the next few weeks will be able to check out a sculpture created by the island's residents during their stay on the island.

Freshwater Bay is hosting a pebble people structure, which 100 people turned out to help put together last weekend, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

Organiser West Wight Landscape Partnership explained that the structure is based on a family and their dog having a picnic on the beach.

Irene Fletcher described the weekend as "fantastic", adding: "Everyone has worked so hard to create something really special. It's quirky but at the same time will have no environmental impact as all the materials used are inert or natural beach materials."

The structure is already a popular talking point for people on Isle of Wight holidays.

Freshwater Bay is located close to the port of Yarmouth and is one of the most beautiful spots on the island for scenery, while sports fans can take advantage of the nearby golf course.
