We see our own three Ivatt locomotives in steam together on the Isle of Wight for the first time. 41298, newly restored 41313 and 46447, the first tender locomotive to run on the Isle of Wight. Together with Hunslet ‘Austerity’ Juno, the three Ivatt locomotives were kindly donated to the IWSR by the Ivatt Locomotive Trust and this is the chance to celebrate the most generous gift of these fine locomotives, which continues the story of steam railways on the Isle of Wight. There’s a Real Ale Bar serving Island beers and you can grab a bite to eat in our refreshment rooms. Plus, explore our Train Story Discovery Centre and learn the story of our Victorian and Edwardian railway vehicles, and their lasting impact on all our lives!
Highly Sensitive Workshop* – Research clearly demonstrates that twenty percent of the population process sensory information at a deep level. Much deeper than the remaining 80% who are unable to understand why we experience the world in a different way to the majority. Without knowing about sensory processing and how it can impact on you emotionally and psychologically, many people are left bewildered by the intensity of life – or feeling different in some way. This way of being affects both men and women equally. We are only just beginning to understand what being HSP means for a child and how it can impact on their wellbeing. We need to know what we can do to help them. This workshop explores what it means to process information at a deep level.
