Isle of Wight brochure wins an award

Visitors could be even more attracted to the Isle of Wight this year after the island's latest guide was named the best holiday brochure in the UK.

The competition attracted more than 60 entries, with organiser Bitesize Britain noting the publication was chock full of useful titbits for visitors, as well as showcasing the natural beauty of the island to its fullest.

Depicting the rolling waves of a sun-soaked beach and the joyful exuberance of children playing, the cover of the brochure clearly highlighted the many fun activities for all the family that can be found on the island.

Group marketing manager for the Isle of Wight Chamber of Commerce, Tourism and Industry Zoe Stroud said: "This is great news for the Isle of Wight and for everyone who is involved in putting the Guide together.

"The Chamber team work hard to produce all the Chamber Guides and so to be recognised for this is fantastic news. A special thanks to Aaron Rudd and Jason Swain and for each and every one that voted."

Ms Stroud added that to win this award is truly "amazing" and will help to further promote the Isle of Wight as an enjoyable and attractive place to visit.

This year's Bitesize runners up were Bournemouth and Blackpool.

Meanwhile, the island was also recently celebrating another major coup, with travel consumer guide Les Routier's naming Mojac's a la carte restaurant in Shooters Hill, Cowes as its Restaurant of the Year 2013.

Celebrated for its outstanding cuisine and commitment to making the most of local produce, Mojac's - which was opened in 2000 - offers a distinctly pleasurable dining experience to its patrons, with mouthwatering dishes including duo of duck, pan fried breast and slowly cooked leg of duck topped with honey parsnips served on a puree of butternut squash with orange gravy.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801549153-ADNFCR
