Brading Scarecrow Festival and other associated events held across the town, supporting the Brading Community partnership – BRAG’S Chosen charity. It is that time of year again, time to think about preparing for the Scarecrow Festival again! This year we would love to see more entries and fun ideas. The last two years have shown what talents there are in Brading, and hopefully this year will prove to be just as successful, if not better. Please find attached the entry form – you will see we have tweaked the entry price – that up to five scarecrows will be still be at £1 each, but five and over will be £5. We would love to see more entries along the main routes, so they will be eye catching to passing drivers, and perhaps enticeg them to stop and visit the town. There will be prizes, competitions and ghost talk evening etc. Hope you will join in the spirit of the Festival, encourage your friends and neighbours to join in to

For a brief moment in time this place was amongst the most important and most secret places on the entire south coast of England. It was guarded by huge guns, set in massive sentinels of concrete. Behind them, hundreds of men and women, working with the latest technologies kept watch for every hour of the entire Second World War to keep this nation safe. Tim’s lecture takes you back to the dark days of 1940. The Home Guard stands alone and Churchill was prepared to commit everything to stop the invasion of the Isle of Wight. This event is part of the Isle of Wight Literary Festival.
