THE Isle of Wight Green Party will travel around the Island in a solar-powered yellow bus next week.

The party's European Parliament election campaign will be travelling around the Island on the electric bus, decorated with Green Party logos.

Originally running all its buses on recycled waste cooking oil from local restaurants, The Big Lemon launched the UK’s first solar-powered electric bus in Brighton in 2017.

It is now converting its entire bus fleet to electric. Electricity to power the buses is provided by solar panels on the roof of the bus depot.

The bus is expected to be at LA Bowl car park on Ryde Esplanade after 2pm on Monday, and St James' Square Newport later that afternoon.

There will be a Green Party election rally at the Riverside Centre at 7pm that evening.
