In News by Bembridge PC

The Isle of Wight Council will join other Island travel operators and offer free travel this Sunday (10 November 2019) on the Cowes Floating Bridge for members and veterans of the Armed Forces.

The travel offer for foot passengers and those traveling by car will be available to those wearing their military uniform, displaying medals or showing their military ID card.

Cabinet member for infrastructure and transport, Councillor Ian Ward, a veteran himself, said “Our veterans and Armed Forces have given so much that we may live in an open and free society. 

“We do what we can to support our community and assist those that have made a significant contribution.  I for one am honoured to have served, and delighted that we can support those who helped protect us, on this national day of reflection and remembrance.”
