Historic Ryde Society

‘Giving Ryde’s Past to the Future’

Historic Ryde Society Quiz Night Thursday 26 October 2023 at Yelf's Hotel, at 7p.m. for 7.30pm.

Following on from a busy July, celebrating 200 years of Ryde Pier, the media frenzy has hit Historic Ryde Society once again! The BBC Countryfile programme contacted HRS a few weeks ago, as they’re filming on the Isle of Wight, and wanted to do a piece about the pier.
Tony and Vic both have long associations with the pier, and were asked whether they would agree to be interviewed for the programme, which will air on November 2nd. Brian and Diana went along to record the process for the website, and to take photographs to put on Twitter.
A lengthy process, it took about forty minutes to film something which will probably be cut to last about three or four minutes, but the weather stayed dry, and everyone seemed pleased with the end results.
