On July 17, Ryde will again play host to a giant inflatable water slide running down Union Street. After the success of last year’s event local Isle of Wight and Ryde Town Councilor Wayne Whittle and Bestival have teamed to bring the 200m slide to the town in an event that will raise cash for local charities. Proceeds will go to Ryde Aspire, Ryde Inshore Rescue, Wight Brainy Bunch, Ryde Arena and The Waterside Trust. To donate £5 and enter the draw, visit www.bestival.net. The winners are due to be announced in early July.
