Wild about Wight

Wild about Wight is a suite of cross-cutting projects led by Vectis Housing Association. It has delivered a unique package of activities and events designed to raise awareness of landscape issues amongst people of all age and abilities, engage them in practical conservation work and reinforce their sense of community and of place. These have included:

  • Green Army - a weekly session offering young people with diferent needs the opportunity to particpate in practical conservation activity

  • Under the Pier - an annual event which encourages people to explore the rich wildlife that lives in the inter-tidal zone under Ryde's Victorian pier

  • Restoring the Arc - rejuvinating Ryde's riverside parkland with a new wildlife trail, new furniture and new wildlife themed play equipment

  • Down to the Town - workshops that offered people the chance to work with artists to record through a range of media features of interest in their local town
