Two parish councils on the Isle of Wight have collaborated to offer a host of entertainment to celebrate Easter.

The communities of Freshwater and Totland will be offering events – such as dance, drama and circus classes – to residents and those who might be on Isle of Wight breaks.

The West Wight police service will also be working with the two councils on ‘Week Out West’ (WOW), along with the West Wight Sports Centre and the local youth service.

Other activities which will feature at the event include photography classes and learning how to be a crime scene investigator. There will also be a special celebration talking place at the region’s Jubilee Field on the Saturday, which will see performances from local bands, as well as a dog show, youth football festival, market stalls and an Easter parade.

Talking about the week-long activities, Krissy Lloyd from the WOW steering committee told iwcp.co.uk: “After the success of the Diamond Jubilee Day last year, we wanted to put on something even bigger and better in 2013.”

She continued: “It’s all about celebrating the local community and we’ve had a great response from groups and organisations.”

The idea for the event was that of local PC Jeff Hughes, who wanted to bring something back to the community. The events will take place from April 8th- 13th, according to islandpulse.co.uk, which is shortly after the Easter holidays take place.
