In 2003, local residents & members of the Festival Committee, James and Barbara Gravenor cycled 3,518 miles over a period of 3 months to visit all 64 islands off the coast of Great Britain with a resident population of over 100 people. Their only forms of transport were bicycles and public ferries. James has since written a book on their journey and this evening's talk and slide show will capture some of the highlights of their trip and some of the insights they gained of island life.
