Quotes

"I don't think you should be taxing people to walk - it's going to separate the communities even more."
"Red Funnel is also benefiting from the repositioning of the Isle of Wight as an all season destination for active couples and families, a strategy which has seen the value of the Island’s tourism economy grow by 6% in the past 12 months."
Shirley added: "This is something we’d like to expand next year, so we’ll be looking for more volunteers, including customers, to cover a larger area. We’ve seen what can be achieved when people pull together and we know we can make a huge impact to the natural areas on the Island."
Red Funnel chief executive Kevin George said: "We are delighted that Mark is joining the team as his skills and experience will be invaluable in helping to improve both our operational efficiency and further developing our already high standards of service."
