Speed-dating walk recommended for single Isle of Wight tourists

Singletons who are heading off on an Isle of Wight holiday this summer could find The One during their time on the island at a special event.

During the 2011 Isle of Wight Walking Festival, which takes place from May 7th 2011 until May 22nd, a speed-dating walk will be held.

The event will take place on May 8th and three couples have already got married as a result of meeting on the annual island trek.

According to the Isle of Wight Council, "this event is a great, fun day out for singletons of all ages and from all walks of life".

It added that for the cost price of £12, a light lunch at one of the Isle of Wight's cosy country pubs is included.

One of the successful couples from the event is Eric and Phillip, who recently wrote to the organisers of the event to update them on their life together, which included a move to France.
