Head to Isle of Wight for Riverfest

Families who are heading to the Isle of Wight in May could enjoy a pleasant day out at this year's Riverfest.

The event has been organised by the Footprint Trust to celebrate the wetland habitats in and around the Medina River and raise awareness of its environmental benefits.

It takes place at Newport Quay on May 15th 2010 and will include a number of family-friendly activities, such as traditional Victorian funfair stalls.

Ray Harrington-Vail, spokesman for the Footprint Trust, said this year's Riverfest will be more diverse than it has ever been before.

"We are hoping to make Riverfest a great annual event - small, fun and informative," he commented.

The event, which has also been designed to promote sustainable water use and the need to conserve wetland habitats, has been backed by the Isle of Wight Council.

According to the authority, plenty of activity days for families are taking place during the Easter holidays, which means the Isle of Wight could be a great place to visit next month.
