Local History Articles 2020

Since 2015 we have been writing a weekly article for the South Wight Chronicle, our local newspaper.  It’s a labour of love that we inherited from the late Fay Brown.

Many of our supporters live far away from Ventnor, and the Chronicle doesn’t have an online edition, so we will now also be publishing these weekly Chronicle articles here on the website.  We call them ‘Chronicles’ which seems an appropriate name – they are some of the stories of the people and places in our town and the surrounding area.

Our local newspaper is valuable to Ventnor, and we don’t wish to undermine it in any way, so we will be publishing the articles here a week after they appear in the South Wight Chronicle.
