Isle of Wight event 'a terrific weekend'

The Isle of Wight Garlic Festival - which took place on the island last weekend - has been described by the organisers as a "terrific" weekend.

Some 20,000 people are thought to have headed to the Isle of Wight Garlic Farm over the course of the festival to ensure it was a resounding success.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, chairman of the Garlic Festival David Holmes stated the number of individuals who attended is similar to when the event was held last year.

"It is gratifying that despite the economic situation we're in, so many islanders and visitors to the Isle of Wight from far and wide came along to it," he told the news provider.

Earlier in the summer, the newspaper reported that the Isle of Wight Garlic Farm had collected a prize from the Royal Horticultural Society's Hampton Court Flower Show for the eighth year in a row.
