Weʼre raising £25,000 to A historic Longshoremans' Shelter in Cowes, Isle of Wight

A POPULAR public seating shelter on Cowes Parade is set to be demolished and a campaign has been launched to save the historic landmark.

Cowes Heritage has expressed its concerns at the loss of the public shelter, which is positioned by the RNLI lifeboat station and has been cordoned off by the Isle of Wight Council, following an engineer's report that deems the structure unsafe.

Chair of Cowes Heritage, George Chastney, said: "A very popular public and historic amenity on the Parade will be lost for ever.

"I am pleased to see that Councillor John Nicholson, who serves on both the Isle of Wight Council and Cowes Town Council, fully supports our strong view that this shelter should be returned to public use as soon as practically possible, preferably before the summer season.

"After inspecting the structure, he believes it is salvageable; an alternative would be a complete rebuild.

"If the Isle of Wight Council is reluctant to spend all the necessary money, he thought Cowes Town Council might be persuaded to make a contribution.

      Good Luck - I hope you can find someone to repair/restore it for a lot less than £25K

      This is an important amenity for visitors to Cowes. I don't care if it is "historic" or not!
