Isle of Wight event 'to attract large numbers'

An upcoming event on the Isle of Wight has been predicted to attract large numbers of people to the island.

The Fort Victoria Foray is taking place on August 19th 2010 in Fort Victoria, near Yarmouth and will feature a wide range of activities offering fun for all the family.

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays wanting to attend the event have been advised to bring a camera with them in order to help to record wildlife spotted in the area.

"Amongst the activities this year are fossil hunting, rock pooling, wildlife gardening and willow weaving," the Isle of Wight Council said.

Attendees can get to the site via a free shuttle bus that will pick them up from Gas Works Lane near Yarmouth Road bridge.

Fort Victoria is a popular destination for those on Isle of Wight holidays, as it boasts attractions such as an Underwater Archaeology Centre, a Planetarium and a Model Railway.
