Well done Simon - we're booked as of 5 minutes ago.  The prices were all spot on!  Really looking forward to it - it has been missed these past few years. Cheers .....Richard & Andrea

Thank you Alex,Simon and "the team". That's superb news and really has cheered me up.  Was literally in the throes of booking a break to Bembridge (the other Warner on the Island and the venue of a previous WB) when I saw this.

I didn't even mention Dizz Baz but yes, he and Alex are advancing in years. I remain eternally youthful. And stupid.

Alex has just mentioned to me that it might be nice if we co-ordinate our meal times - certainly dinner - given Norton Grange gives us a choice, so we are going to book 7pm each evening for dinner. You are welcome to be there at the same time or make alternative timings to better suit you as you wish. We haven't yet decided on whether we will do a 'raffle' - mainly because we need to ensure that we don't give a top prize to an outsider (as happened once before which saw me threatened with legal action and having to spend a good hour sweet-talking someone who was neither with us nor sober - Alex found that highly amusing). If we do have the 'great' WightBlat raffle then it will be at the 7pm dinner time on the Saturday evening.

We will leave breakfast timings to personal choice entirely. All you need to know is that we will do the usual and arrange for a couple of stops each day: perhaps a lunch venue and somewhere for afternoon tea. But there will be, as ever, no compulsion to join or follow a set route etc.

That's it for now. Thank you to those of you who have posted above and sent direct messages. It is lovely to know how much this little shindig has meant to you.

Thank you guys for putting this together again, can't wait to get back to the island.

Really hope to visit the Ferguson museum again if it is still open, that was just amazing.

We must find Effin Owl the trip won't be the same without him / her.

I have booked in.

Single people please note the chalet @ £159 (very good value) but has a single bed, slightly more for a double bed (not a problem at all).
