Mission Statement

The Isle of Wight Observer is a weekly free newspaper providing news, advertising and information to residents of and visitors to the Isle of Wight.

We support our community, by reporting local news, giving our readers a voice, promoting events and recognising achievements.

We are an Island-based business, owned by Islanders that helps other Island companies achieve success by building relationships so that we understand their needs and can provide them with affordable advertising options that work.

We aim to be an independent and trusted source of local information and advertising content that both entertains and informs our Island community.
