This month we are Springing into Action and getting back outside in the garden and tackling all of those jobs that we have had to put off due to terrible winter weather we have all experienced. Turn to our springtime feature to get some fresh ideas for your home and garden and discover what a great selection of suppliers we have based here on the Island.
It’s also that time of the year again, as Isle of Wight Radio launch their Golden Ticket competition! This fantastic competition offers you the chance to win prizes ranging from a sailing experience with the Ellen MacArthur Cancer trust on ‘Moonspray’; to British Airways flights to Marrakech, Barcelona or Rome; to Osborne Concert tickets to unlimited cinema visits! Phew! All you need to do is pick up your FREE Golden Ticket from one of the local businesses taking part and listen to Isle of Wight Radio on FM 107 and 102. Find out more on our special Golden Ticket page.
In March I was privileged to be asked to be a judge at this year’s Isle of Wight College Hair Show and had a great evening judging all the wonderful creations from the Level 2 and Level 3 hairdressing students. Turn to our Health and Beauty pages to find out more and see for yourself the originality and imagination that these students possess.
We have our usual round up of local and Island news, the John Hannam interview, Sports Personality and Alan Stoud’s fascinating Island Story. We also have a new look Food and Drink section. Hopefully this month you might be able to sit outside and read the Beacon (I can but hope!).
