Isle of Wight holidays promoted by new firm

Individuals are being encouraged to book Isle of Wight holidays and stay in the coastal town of Shanklin during their time on the island.

A new company - Visit Shanklin - has been formed in order to persuade people of the benefits of heading to the location on a break.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, the organisation has been created by Shanklin Theatre and Community Trust.

It will be charged with spending the £11,246 grant that has been given by the town council and to do so it is set to work with the Shanklin Hotel and Accommodation Association (SHAA).

A recent meeting of Shanklin Town Council was told that it is hoped the venture will be able to capitalise on the 2.5 million annual visitors to the SHAA website.

One of the draws to Shanklin on the Isle of Wight is Shanklin Old Village, which is famous for the small gift shops and cafes that dominate the area.
