Appley Frame #RydeFrame

Get in the frame!

If you’re at Appley Park look out for our newest installation – the Ryde Frame!

With support from Goodleaf Tree Climbing and the Isle of Wight Council we have commissioned and installed a wonderful new feature at Appley Park. Made by creatives Dave Badman and Lisa Long at Ecclestone George.

The #RydeFrame is the perfect place to take a selfie with Ryde’s iconic Appley Tower. Have a go, and don’t forget to tag us into your selfies!

Name our reserve!

Gift To Nature want to know what to call Ryde’s nature reserve – will you help? The nature reserve south of Quarry Lane, Ryde has various names, and people have told us they want to have a say in what we call it in the future. So now’s your chance to tell Gift To Nature what you think they should call that beautiful bit of countryside.

At present Gift To Nature are calling it Swanmore Meadows, but local people have said that name suggests a housing estate, and not the beautiful woodland and grassland it is.
