AN ISLE of Wight cleaning company has given Ryde Splash Park a free makeover in an effort to keep the local community clean.

Newgents Gutter Cleaning, Jet Washing & Bin Cleaning Service, based in Shanklin, volunteered its services to get the park fixed up in time for last weekend after recent conditions had left the site in a state of disrepair.

The park had been battered by strong winds and couldn't be safely used by visitors.

After the area was cleared and made safe, more than 30 bags of moss, weeds, sand and rubbish were removed — also without cost — by East Cowes waste disposal enterprise Harvey Clearance & Maintenance.

A spokesperson for Newgents said: "Hopefully now the splash park can reopen and families can start to make the most of it once again."
