The Isle of Wight has so many beautiful settings to enhance our well-being, that it might be hard to pick just one!


We would like to know about your favourite ‘happy’ place – perhaps it’s the golden beaches of Colwell Bay, the stunning views from Arreton Downs or the colourful hues of Headon Warren overlooking the Needles at sunset.


Send us a picture and the reason why your favourite spot is so special to you – and you could win a year-long 1Leisure gold One Card, giving you the chance to support your physical and mental well-being through exercise, activity and keeping fit.


The winning picture will be featured in a future edition of The Island (the council’s new e-newsletter) as well as on our digital platforms, including Facebook and Twitter.


To enter, simply email us at  including:

  • your digital image (in landscape format);
  • up to 50 words about why that location enhances your sense of well-being, completing the phrase: “This is my Isle of Wight happy place because…”
  • your name;
  • the town/village/location where you live.
