Islanders are being urged to make their vote count in a national competition today (Monday).

The Isle of Wight has been nominated as a top Holiday Destination for the Countryfile Magazine awards. Voting closes today (Monday 5th March) and we’re being urged to vote on the Countryfile website before the day.

The Isle of Wight faces competition from Suffolk, Speyside, the Pembrokeshire coast and the Forest of Bowland.

Visit Isle of Wight’s new Managing Director, Will Myles, says to win would be a great start in his new role:

“What a day, I’m starting on my first day at Visit Isle of Wight and it links quite nicely in with the final day of voting on the Countryfile awards for the Island being the holiday destination of the year, so get voting, get onto www.countryfile.com.”
