ISLAND LINE REFURBISHMENT DELAYED FOR SIX WEEKS
Due to unforeseen problems the refurbishment of Island Line had been delayed for approximately six weeks so the service won’t restart until
mid-May. There are rumours going around that it won’t be finished until September, while that may be accurate as work will continue after
the new service re-starts.
New Medical Hub In Sandown

Beachfield Road Development Gets Underway

FLY TIPPING & LITTER – SPECIAL EFFORT TO TACKLE THE PROBLEM
The IW Council has set up a special task & finish group of councillors to see how we can deal with the ever-growing problem of Fly Tipping and Littering. Sandown suffers from both these issues, as does the whole Island, and I think there is little excuse. Apologists for this irresponsible littering blame the tip or the rubbish collection system. We are extremely lucky that we have our Green Town Volunteers who dedicate much of their time to clearing litter etc; other areas are not so lucky.
