TRADITIONAL playground style games are adding a welcome splash of colour to Ventnor seafront — and proving popular with families.

Ventnor Town Council recently installed a series of children's games near the already popular Isle of Wight-shaped paddling pool on the Esplanade.

There's "copy me", hopscotch and a numerical snake — design to get children using their imagination while keeping active.

Mayor Steph Toogood opened the attraction.

She said: "This is a perfect seafront area for parents to relax whilst children play and learn."
