Enhancement FundThu, 21st September 2017

The Ventnor Enhancement Fund (VEF) Registered Charity 1115809, established in 2006 with the object of: the preservation, enhancement and maintenance of public areas and amenities of Ventnor for the benefit of the public.

Projects have included:
  • planting out areas such as the, now removed, flower beds along the seafront;
  • planting and maintaining the beds outside the Royal Hotel;
  • maintaining and paying for the lighting in Ventnor Park;
  • maintaining the lighting on the Cascade;
  • completing the Sea Breeze Park children’s play project;
  • An open air stage behind La Falaise car park on Eastern cliffs
  • An outdoor fitness gym on the site of the former children's playground in Ventnor Park,”OutFit”
  • Currently working to provide garden plots within the town
It has invested in the development of books on local walks with CD and tactile bookmarks for the elderly and anyone unable to get out and about. These have been successfully used with dementia patients and we are looking for other outlets.
It holds an annual BBQ which is very popular and provides mulled wine and mince pies at the Carol singing in Ventnor Park.
