A PARADE in Ryde was among the St George’s Day celebrations around the Isle of Wight today (Wednesday).

Organised by Mike Nicholls, landlord of the Star Inn, the event brought together patriotic residents who toured around the town decked out in St George inspired oufits.

Mr Nicholls, who held similar parades on the mainland before taking over the Star seven months ago, said: "People loved it. It’s going to be even bigger and better next year."
