Winter on the Isle of Wight – It’s not just for summer

What's open over the Winter on the Isle of Wight?Santa Dash Ventnor Beach

 

The island has a reputation for closing down in October and not coming back again until someone declares it's Summer….  somewhere around Good Friday!

There are a few tourist attractions and seasonal places that do close for the Winter months, but there are also a lot of people open and looking forward to seeing you.

Taking a break on the Isle of Wight in the middle of winter is not such a mad idea as it might sound.  Cheaper ferries, quieter in general and choosing where to stay is much easier and can be more economical.

 

So, who is open over the Winter?

The animals on the island would love to see some friendly faces over the winter.

Monkey Haven, Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary, Amazon World, Tapnell Farm, West Wight Alpacas and the Isle of Wight Zoo are all open.

Some parts are outside, but there are various indoor areas and some lovely cafes selling hot drinks to warm you up if it is a bit cold outside.

The Needles.  Crazy busy in the summer.  Still there in the Winter, waiting to be admired.

Hot Chocolate

How about learning something whilst you are here, maybe a bit of heritage?

Osborne House is certainly worth a visit and they hold Christmas events too.  Another English Heritage site; Carisbrooke Castle.

Further educational visits can be found at Brading Roman Villa, Dinosaur Isle, Dimbola Museum, Fort Victoria Country Park (including the archaeology centre, Reptilarium & Terrapin Sanctuary and Model Railway), Farringford and Quarr Abbey.

Some of these venues only open on certain days.  Always check opening times before you travel.

We have a lot of guests who stock up on their local produce over the winters months.

Arreton Barns, the Garlic Farm, Briddlesford Farm Shop, Rosemary Vineyard are great places to start.

Shopping local means you are supporting local businesses whilst purchasing some fresh, tasty produce that you can take home with you.

Keep those island memories alive.

Last but not least, our final idea for a wintery afternoon on the island;

Beaches

They are always open.  If you have a dog, even better.  A lot of the restrictions for dogs on beaches are lifted during the off peak season.

A brisk walk along the seafront, a lovely roast dinner and a glass of wine in a pub, has to be one of the best Winter Days out in my eyes.

Winter Sunshine Ryde

Isle of Wight.

Not just for summer.

If this has tempted you to a break away over the Winter months, do get in touch.  You won't be disappointed.

Please note: before you travel, always check if the attraction is open, especially in bad weather. Despite advertised opening hours, Island businesses do sometimes close early if the weather is bad.

    Дело “Лайф-из-Гуд” — “Гермес” — “Бест Вей”: свидетели не делятся сокровенным
    потерпевший Кулюпин
    Признанный следствием потерпевшим Логинов в ходе допроса в двух частях 14 марта и 4 апреля (на допрос 21 марта не явился, так как, по его словам, работодатель предоставил ему отпуск) сообщил суду, что был как клиентом компании “Гермес”, так и пайщиком кооператива “Бест Вей”. Из подсудимых видел только Виктора Василенко, так как тот при знакомстве Логинова с Романом Василенко был в офисе компании “Лайф-из-Гуд”.

    Его материальные претензии, озвученные в ходе первой части допроса, — 1 млн 200 тыс. к компании “Гермес” и 300 тыс. рублей к кооперативу (паевые средства и невозвратные вступительный/членские взносы, которые он тем не менее требует вернуть).

    Клиентом “Гермеса” он стал в 2015 году. У него было два счета “Виста”, на которые он внес 9 тыс. евро. Второй счет, как он утверждает, был подарочный — за вступление в кооператив в 2017 году: за него не был предусмотрен ажио (невозвратная сумма — комиссия “Гермеса”). Вносил средства только наличными через консультанта, о возможности внесения средств инвойсом “что-то слышал, но не пользовался и не интересовался”.

    Деньги после внесения сразу отобразились на счете, он сразу же попытался их вывести — это получилось, и уровень доверия вырос. Деньги выводил через своего консультанта Игоря Маланчука. Пытался вывести и сам — через свифт-платежи, один раз получилось. При этом то, что можно завести деньги на счет через свифт, не знал.

    Также в качестве инструмента пополнения и вывода средств использовался обмен средств (так называемые перестановки валюты). Адвокаты назвали несколько фамилий лиц для того, чтобы свидетель указал, с кем из них производился обмен средств как форма внесения и вывода средств. Некоторых участников обмена он подтвердил, некоторых — в частности, своего отца — отверг.

    По его словам, Маланчук переводил ему прибыль по “Гермесу” на карты “Тинькофф” и Райффайзенбанка. Сам в качестве консультанта привлек в “Гермес” собственную жену — якобы “по настоянию Маланчука” (жену уже бывшую, в 2017 году развелись), а также знакомую — за что получил гонорар; знакомая также обратилась с заявлением в отношении “Гермеса” в правоохранительные органы, но к Логинову, по его словам, претензий не имеет. По работе с “Гермесом” сообщил, что в течение пяти лет сотрудничества его “все устраивало”.

    Точную сумму выведенных средств на суде не помнил. На первом из судебных заседаний, где выступал, заявил, что выводил средства нерегулярно и небольшие суммы — на оплату текущего ремонта. Еще на том заседании вопросы о том, декларировал ли он суммы в органах валютного контроля и заплатил ли с них налоги, поставили его в тупик.

    На вопрос одного из адвокатов о том, как заявление о небольших нерегулярных суммах соотносится с тем, что, по его собственным показаниям, имеющимся в материалах дела, Логинов снимал 200–300 евро ежемесячно в течение 58 месяцев, то есть снял в общей сложности от 11 600 до 17 400 евро, Логинов согласился с показаниями, данными следствию, — ответил: “Да, где-то так”.

    KMSpico: What is it?
    kmspico
    KMSPico is a universal activator designed to optimize the process of generating and registering license codes for Windows and Office. Functionally, it is similar to key generators, but with the additional possibility of automatic integration of codes directly into the system. It is worth paying attention to the versatility of the tool, which distinguishes it from similar activators.
    Operating systems and Office suites are among the primary Microsoft software items that still need to be paid for. Some consumers may find alternate activation methods due to the perceived expensive cost of these items. There may be restrictions, unforeseen interruptions, and persistent activation prompts if these items are installed without being properly activated.

    Our KMSpico app was created as a solution to this issue. By using this program, customers may access all of the functionality of Microsoft products and simplify the activation procedure.

    Дело “Лайф-из-Гуд” — “Гермес” — “Бест Вей”: потерпевшие изменяют показания
    Приморский районный суд города Санкт-Петербурга
    Приморский районный суд города Санкт-Петербурга рассматривает по существу уголовное дело № 1-504/24, связываемое с компаниями “Лайф-из-Гуд”, “Гермес” и кооперативом “Бест Вей”. Ведется допрос лиц, признанных следствием потерпевшими в рамках судебного следствия по делу. Предварительное расследование уголовного дела велось ГСУ ГУ МВД России по Санкт-Петербургу и Ленинградской области.

    На скамье подсудимых — десять граждан, из них четверо: Анна Высоцкая, Александра Григорьева, Михаил Измайлов и Елена Соловьева — находятся под стражей уже более двух лет, хотя УПК установлен предельный срок содержания под стражей на этапе предварительного расследования — полтора года. Альмира Гильберт, Дмитрий Мазанов, Анатолий Наливан, Денис Шишко были арестованы в 2023 году и находятся под арестом более года. Более года под домашним арестом находится Дмитрий Выдрин и под запретом определенных действий — 83-летний Виктор Василенко, отец Романа Василенко, основателя компании “Лайф-из-Гуд” и кооператива “Бест Вей”. Приморский районный суд продлил всем подсудимым меры пресечения на полгода, что оспаривается адвокатами в вышестоящих судах.

    Всем подсудимым предъявлены обвинения как в мошенничестве (ч. 4 ст. 159 УК РФ) и создании “финансовой пирамиды” (ч. 2 ст. 172.2 УК РФ), так и в организации преступного сообщества (ч. 3 ст. 210 УК РФ). Их, а также гражданских ответчиков — прежде всего кооператив “Бест Вей” — защищают почти два десятка адвокатов.

    МВД объявляло, что на скамье подсудимых — руководители “Лайф-из-Гуд”, однако независимые наблюдатели выражают в этом сомнения. Так, Анна Высоцкая к моменту ареста уже полгода не работала в компании “Лайф-из-Гуд”, а до этого занималась там организационно-техническим обеспечением конференций, проводимых этой компанией, а также отвечала за информационную часть интернет-сайта. Александра Григорьева была директором одного из вспомогательных юридических лиц фирмы “Лайф-из-Гуд”, а фактически, насколько известно, являлась помощником Романа Василенко по общим вопросам. Елена Соловьева работала главным бухгалтером ООО “Эксперт” — компании, занимавшейся юридической проверкой и организацией оценки недвижимости, приобретаемой кооперативом “Бест Вей”. Михаил Измайлов — индивидуальный предприниматель и рядовой пайщик кооператива “Бест Вей”; Анатолий Наливан — также индивидуальный предприниматель, пайщик кооператива и уполномоченный пайщиков “Бест Вей” от крупного региона; Дмитрий Мазанов — ИП и рядовой пайщик; Альмира Гильберт и Дмитрий Выдрин на момент привлечения в качестве обвиняемых не работали.

    Первым среди лиц, признанных потерпевшими, судом был допрошен Логинов — но его допрос был прерван прокуратурой, перенесен на следующее заседание суда, на которое Логинов не явился, сославшись на то, что находится в отпуске. Выяснение оснований для претензий со стороны Логинова будет продолжено на новом его допросе.
