From Gillian Drewett, Ryde:

I NOTED in your paper recently the news that Tim and Emma Foster will not be re-opening their Three Buoys restaurant in Ryde.

To me this is very sad news. I and my friends from the mainland have had very many enjoyable evenings at Three Buoys.

I shall really miss these, and Emma and Tim.

As a trustee of Ryde Museum, I asked them for a contribution to our Christmas raffle. Tim gave a very generous donation and we were very grateful for his support.

Can I please thank them for all the happy times and wish them good luck for all their future adventures.

Plus, can I please request that they come back to Ryde soon!
