A popular annual event that is themed around the Isle of Wight’s coast and countryside takes place on Thursday 19 August this year.
Organised by IW Council’s Parks and Countryside service, the Fort Victoria Foray, held at Fort Victoria in Yarmouth, is popular with families and a range of activities and displays are available.
Amongst the activities this year are fossil hunting, rock pooling, wildlife gardening and willow weaving. There will also be walks in the woods and on the beach where the public will help record all wildlife that is discovered. Bringing your own digital camera or camera phone is recommended.
The event runs from 1030 – 1630 and is free. There is an overflow car park available and a free shuttle bus will also be provided from Gas Works Lane near Yarmouth Road bridge.
