I hadn't heard that but I know Ryde harbour has been given over to private ownership in the last year, so definite changes afoot on the island

So I went there for a walk yesterday after hearing the news and ended up having food at the restaurant. We were approached by a man claiming to be the current owner, he was asking if we knew anyone that wanted to buy it! I figured it was a "I've got a bridge to sell you" scam (I mean it'd be a bit crazy going table to table in a pub looking to actually do a business deal) but it did make me chuckle.
