Wow is this as exciting as it gets on the Island. The car involved must have been driven by an old person no youngster would be seen in a Hyundai.


I’m 24 and have a Hyundai! I love it.


It’s comments like this that encourage young drivers to get wholly interoperate cars and loads of debt. A small nice car like a Hyundai is perfect. They don’t break down and cheap to run. Ideal when you’re on a tight budget.


Hope it wasn’t the same car that turned onto the Briddlesford road, without looking.
Absolute nutter – clearly couldn’t judge the speed of my car, which wasn’t going too fast. Luckily my brakes are good!
Glad no one was seriously injured in Shanklin.

Exactly what I was thinking!

Opinions Matter

Shanklin fire station has not been operational for many years now.


How about before criticising Shanklin retained firefighters. If there currently are any. Consider would you be willing to give up many hours of your own free time and to drop whatever your doing at the drop of a hat to respond to a call out. I Believe there is a shortage of retained firefighters in all areas of the island.


Dodgems are available to ride at the back,of SANDOWN PIER
