Historic Ryde Society is delighted to announce an innovative new fundraising idea to boost the Ice Well fund, the Ice Well fund moves to Ryde Pier!. Thanks to Wightlink, residents are now able to ‘adopt’ a starfish, snail and flowers on the upright posts supporting the railings along the eastern side of the pier. Brian will count the posts, and counting will begin from the dry end. Would you like to stroll along Ryde Pier to say ‘hello’ to ‘your post’? There won’t be anything to identify the post as yours, but names will be recorded in the Heritage Centre. Please contact email@example.com for further details. Return to homepage.
Volunteers’ Soirée 2013 – On Wednesday, June 5, as part of the national celebration , Volunteers’ Week 2013, the committee organised a social soirée for the volunteers in the Heritage Centre. Unfortunately, due to ill health, Historic Ryde Society Gloria Minghella, was unable to be present.
Over twenty volunteers, old and brand new, arrived for a glass of fizzy and some nibbles. This was also a chance to catch up with other volunteers and meet some new volunteers for the first time.
