Isle of Wight businesses 'are doing well'

The Isle of Wight's business sector has hailed the strong performance of the island's various enterprises.

A special event was staged this week to mark the centenary of the Isle of Wight Chamber of Commerce, Tourism and Industry.

This saw a number of awards being handed out to local organisations such as the Isle of Wight Council, Minghella Ice Cream, Dabells Furnishing and bus operator Southern Vectis.

John Owen, chairman of the Chamber, also took the opportunity to praise businesses on the island for withstanding the recent economic downturn, the Isle of Wight County Press reports.

He said that even in these challenging times, local companies are still doing well.

This comes after Kevin Smith, chief executive of the Chamber, noted that businesses on the Isle of Wight are feeling increasingly optimistic.

He said confidence is growing because "positive signs of recovery" are being seen in a number of different sectors.
