The OneWight campaign launched on Friday, July 23.

The first hurdle in the campaign is getting government to acknowledge the Isle of Wight's special geographical nature and grant it an exemption, such as that given to some Scottish islands.

Islanders can support the campaign by signing the petition, either on paper or online at www.onewight.org.uk. This can be backed up with letters written to deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, making the Island's case.

Campaign co-ordinator Bob Seely is currently enlisting petition co-ordinators for each of the Island's electoral wards and Richard Priest, manager of the Riverside Centre and community volunteer, has been appointed as campaign spokesman.
