Hop on-board the Sandhopper

The Isle of Wight Community Rail Partnership has been working hard over the last year to secure funding from partners for a much needed Community Rail Bus link from Sandown station into Sandown town, the beach and attractions making life easier for Island Line passengers visiting the Island and the town.

Line Guides and maps

So here I am, sat in front of my computer on a Friday early evening in May and still working. It’s been BONKERS these last few months with projects for the mainland and Island needing my attention. This is sometimes difficult to make sure that they are as perfect in their delivery as I want…
