Goodleaf RAHe’s mastered the art of ballroom dancing and even spent a night in a tent suspended from a vertical cliff, but last week Daybreak Entertainment editor, Richard Arnold, found himself swinging amongst the canopy with the Isle of Wight’s Goodleaf Tree Climbing.

Vist Isle of Wight organised the trip for Richard and a crew from ITV’s morning Daybreak programme so they could make a feature, to be aired this week, about recreating childhood holiday memories.

“It’s brilliant for the Island to get this type of national tv coverage. Richard said he loved his trip so much he would be returning soon!”

Daybreak producer Ali Lutz added:

“We got some amazing shots of the Island and Richard absolutely loved being up the tree. We all enjoyed some of the famous Goodleaf flapjacks”

Richard, who lists Queen Victoria as one of the people he would have most liked to interview, also went to Osborne House and the Needles during his visit to the Island.
