LETTERS From Julia Bridgeman, Yarmouth Ferry User Group, Yarmouth:
THERE was a moment of great excitement last week when I saw Wightlink’s full page advertisement — "A fixed fare all year round"; "take all your family at no extra cost"; "£38.40 return".
We’ve done it — I thought — a fairer fare for Island users!
And it is — so long as you can stump up £1,152 in the first instant and make 60 crossings in 12 months.
From Kevin Ralph, Niton:
Ransom price: HAS Wightlink lost the plot?
As a self-employed tradesman, Wightlink want £115 for a day return for a standard Transit van.
Red Funnel only want £48.
I suggest we all stick two fingers up at Wightlink and use Red Funnel. They cannot just hold us to ransom.
Vote with your feet!
