We loved Lee Beck's picture of Ventnor Esplanade with the Isle of Wight-shaped paddling pool and former canoe lake looking busy.

Paul Couelesant asked if other We Grew Up on the Isle of Wight members remembered the pedal cars on what is now Hope Road car park, Shanklin, in the 1950s.

Lots of people commented that they remembered them well and Julie Lawrence said: "I remember there being a large array of different bikes, go-karts and pedal cars. I learnt to ride a two-wheeler there!"

Steve Berden has shared a few pictures of the old swimming and diving rafts which used to be moored off the Isle of Wight's beaches and one of the pictures showed the raft off of Princes Green on Cowes, with the tea hut which used to stand on a concrete apron on the beach in one corner.

Pauline Wildish recognised the tea hut and shared a picture of her stood outside it during a visit to Cowes.
