Has fbb finally flipped? We shall see.
Ever anxious to pay its way and discourage tourism and leisure, the Council is busily closing toilets, closing libraries, increasing parking charges etc. etc. As part of this suicidal mission, our political representatives have flogged all the Dotto trains; best not to provide much for the visitors, they might come back again.
And ... As part of its cost-cutting anti-visitor policy the IoW Council has closed all its Tourist Information Offices. These have been taken over by Southern Vectis. But they are staffed by (e.g.) school bus drivers, so they close at arbitrary times, even at non school times if the chappie is needed to provide "cover" on a daytime route. In Cowes the "office" is a man with a table and a few leaflets. It is disgraceful.
So there may be Shanklin Steamer leaflets, IF you can find them!
