Chief Executive Keith Greenfield says:

“We hold Meet the Manager sessions throughout the year and always enjoy meeting customers and finding out their views on our services.

“This time we will also be briefing customers about our £45million investment in our new flagship Victoria of Wight and the completion of port improvements at both Fishbourne and Portsmouth, which has already improved punctuality on the route and cut congestion.”

Plans are being finalised for music on board several Wightlink sailings on board ships in the run-up to Christmas to include performances by members of Newport Jazz Club and a string quartet from the Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra. If any other Island musical groups would like to play on board Wightlink ferries, they should contact Karen Woods at [email protected].

Non-landing foot passenger tickets will be available for customers and Islanders who want to meet the managers on board the ferries. Contact [email protected].
