Charity antiques fair next month

Anyone planning to head to the Isle of Wight in the coming weeks might like to head along to an event that could see them pick up some wonderful bric-a-brac and even a treasured future heirloom or two.

The Charity Antiques and Collector's Fair is to take place on February 24th and will be held at Northwood House in West Cowes.

Visitors are invited to head along to peruse the more than 30 stalls that will be offering a range of antique items, selling books, furniture, jewellery, glassware, china and all manner of collectibles.

Entry on the day will cost just £1.75 for adults and children can get in for free. A group of three adults can also purchase a discounted ticket at £5.

Raising funds for the Isle of Wight branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association, the fair is now in its ninth year and is organised by the daughters of original founder Mavis Summerfield, who sadly died of the affliction in 2002.

Having become an essential part of the island's antiques calendar over recent years, the event is not one to be missed for all those who enjoy a fine day's antiquing.

Meanwhile, visitors to the island over the February half-term are also being urged to check out Robin Hill Adventure Park & Gardens, with event manager Darren Cool stating the attraction is now fully geared up for this year's Chinese New Year celebrations.

Set to run from February 16th to 24th, the park will be lit up with lanterns and flags, while the many ponds and waterways will play host to floating paper lanterns.

Mr Cool stated: "It's a colourful spectacle of sound and light to celebrate the start of the Chinese New Year and to help us look forward to the coming of spring. It will certainly give something bright and cheerful in one of the dullest months of the calendar."ADNFCR-3083-ID-801530004-ADNFCR
