Wight Green Directory

The Footprint Trust works in the community and our staff have many years of experience in managing and supporting community projects. The Trust is regularly asked about suppliers or services. Because of legal concerns we cannot actually recommend. However, we have put together this directory of commercial and other suppliers, who may be able to assist you.

We would also suggest that anyone looking for trustworthy businesses should visit the Trader Approval Scheme website.

Please mention the Footprint Trust when contacting these businesses.
