It’s an unfortunate reality that thousands of pedestrians are injured in road traffic accidents every year. Often when there is an accident, the issue of ‘who is to blame?’ arises.
Winter is fast approaching, and that inevitably means increased fuel consumption for heating oil users in many Island homes. But it is reassuring for those with oil fired heating or an Aga that Isle of Wight Fuels are on hand with their dedicated Island based sales team and efficient delivery service.

THE JOHN HANNAM INTERVIEW
Actor Graham Pountney and his wife Suki Taylor, a dancer and choreographer, have been coming to the Island since 1976, and were married six years later in Seaview.
Since then Graham has starred in Howard’s Way, until his most spectacular screen exit as powerboat driver Mark Foster, and guested in shows like New Tricks, Hannay and EastEnders. Meanwhile, Suki appeared in Hello Dolly with Danny La Rue, worked with the Ewoks in Return of the Jedi and now plies her skills with local wheelchair dancers and dementia sufferers.
A BEACON SPECIAL INTERVIEW
Sarah Jackson is a true inspiration for any Isle of Wight youngster looking to build a successul career. Sarah went to the mainland to become a Police Constable, and has now returned to the Island as one of our most important and influential citizens. Sarah Jackson admits that when she was growing up on the Island she was not sure which career path she wanted to take, until she finally decided the police force would help her fulfil her aims and ambitions. However, when she moved to the mainland to become a Constable in August 1989, she could not have envisaged that she would ultimately return to the Island in the prestigious position of Superintendent Sarah Jackson.
A BEACON SPECIAL INTERVIEW
Second World War veteran Bert Earley describes himself as ‘one of the lucky ones’, and when he talks about his war-time trips journey around Britain, repairing vital aircraft under the constant threat of German bombing raids, it is easy to see why! Bert, born, brought up and still living in Cowes, is now 96, and the second eldest of four brothers, three of whom served their country during the war. Eldest brother Frank recently celebrated his 100th birthday; George has sadly passed away, as has Ron, the youngest, who did his National Service after the war ended.
