DISHES from around the world were prepared as part of an event to promote diversity across the Isle of Wight.

Food, such as Indonesian beef rendang, Filipino seafood noodles, American-style pork ribs and Vietnamese prawn crackers, were served at the Taste of Diversity event hosted by the Foundation Bakery, Pyle Street, Newport, in conjunction with Friendship Group of Equals Isle of Wight and Isle of Wight Council staff equality and diversity group.

Council leader Cllr Ian Stephens said: ""Diversity and equality are very important in the modern world and I fully support events such as these and groups like the council's staff equality and diversity group.

"The Isle of Wight is a very welcoming place and events like these can only enhance our reputation."

The Foundation Bakery provides training and support for those facing challenges when entering the world of work.

Who the heck wants "diversity"? Not me nor anyone I know. A good Curry maybe but "diversity"? No thanks.
